On December 4, 2009, one hundred and fifty Denver residents will join together in downtown Denver to raise awareness about homelessness by spending a night in a box. Those who are sleeping in boxes are raising funds through personal sponsorships to help raise funds and awareness to the plight of the poor in Denver.

The "box sleepers" are a diverse group of people - some wealthy and some still living in poverty. However, they all have the same heart - to advocate for the poor.

The mission of the event is to raise funds in order to serve the poor and the fatherless in our city. All the funds raised will go to existing programs currently helping the poor (Denver Rescue Mission & Denver's Road Home) as well as renovation costs of a newly acquired community center to serve the fatherless (Providence Ministries) located in the heart of Five Points, Denver.
