HOPE Calloway’s Annual

Box Dweller Fundraiser

A Walk in Their Shoes
Saturday, April 27, 2024 | 4:30pm – 7:30pm | MSU Arboretum

Join the cause!

Get ready for the return of HOPE Calloway’s Box Dweller Fundraiser – an annual community event that’s become a staple for many. We’re looking forward to a few tweaks that aim to uphold tradition and enhance the impact on our community.

Here’s the lowdown:

Box Dwellers are committing to an 8-hour stay in their boxes to raise awareness about homelessness in our community. This year’s venue? The MSU Arboretum, providing a serene backdrop along the walking path.

From 4:30 PM to 7:30 PM, we invite the community to our main event – “A Walk in Their Shoes.“ It’s an immersive experience, a stroll through the stories and struggles of those facing homelessness, told by actors but inspired by real-life stories from HOPE Calloway’s clients. After the walkthrough, you’ll have the chance to chat with our Box Dwellers.

Our goal is to foster understanding about the challenges our clients endure daily. Join us for a more subdued yet impactful experience, and leave with a deeper appreciation for the hurdles so many face. The stories are real and the atmosphere is one of community connection and empathy.

We’ve partners with GiveButter this year to create a truly unique fundraising platform. You can give using the form below, or click the button to find our Box Dweller fundraising pages!

Get ready to dive into a unique experience that not only sheds light on homelessness but also lets you walk a mile in the shoes of those facing it. Welcome to HOPE Calloway’s annual Box Dweller Fundraiser – an event that’s all about community, compassion, and making a difference!

Imagine spending 8 hours outdoors, nestled in a cardboard box – that’s what our fearless Box Dwellers sign up for! And guess what? These incredible individuals come from every corner of life – from local leaders to police officers, pastors, business moguls, students, and even the sweetest grandmas and grandpas. It’s a diverse mix of people coming together for a common cause.
