Shantytown Fundraising Effort by local churches Sat & Sun, Nov 19, 20

From Family Promise of Southern Ocean County, an explanation of Shantytown:

Shantytown, a community outreach to the homeless and hungry of Southern Ocean county, will be held at Manahawkin Lake Park from 6:00 pm Saturday, November 19 to 8:00 am Sunday, November 20.  The event will be open to the public  Saturday evening for a clothing and canned food drive.  You may also sponsor participants who will “spend the night in a box, so someone else won’t have to.”  All proceeds will benefit local area homeless outreaches and food pantries.  Shantytown is a community action project of a coalition of 7 area churches.  For further information or to make donations, email or visit our web page at Print a flyer for your bulletin board.
