Experience What It's Really Like To Be Homeless

Faith Mission's "Night in a Box," raises awareness of homelessness and raises funds to feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, and clothe the poor in Texoma. The 6th Annual Night in a Box begins Friday, April 27, 2012 at 5 p.m. at Sikes Senter on the JC Penney Parking area near Maplewood.

The event starts with beans and cornbread at 5 p.m. on Friday, April 27 and ends at 7 a.m. on Saturday, April 28, 2012.
