MOBILE, Ala. (WPMI) Would you pay money to sleep outside. in a box?
Thats exactly what some people are doing Saturday night outside the Alabama School of Math and Science.
Family Promise of Coastal Alabama has partnered with the Sybil Smith Family Village to put on the 8th annual Cardboard City event.
Volunteers came out with a box sponsored by a group or business to raise money for the agencies and stayed the night inside their box.
The event is intended to raise awareness and funds for women and families facing a homeless crisis.
"It's a group effort because when someone is in need in our community it takes the whole community to come together and help them through that," said Teressa Ramsey, Executive Director of Family Promise of Coastal Alabama.
Competing with skylines, condos and multi-level buildings all made out of cardboard, the group with the most creative cardboard home wins the coveted Most Out-of-the-Box award.
