Spotlight: Cardboard for Christ

TINTON FALLS, N.J. — Nine-year-old Gideon Dowling slept outside on a recent Friday night.

“The experience taught me that the homeless would be very cold at night,” said Gideon, son of Monmouth Church of Christ preaching minister Matthew Dowling.
In all, 150 children and adults showed their support for helping the homeless by participating in “Cardboard Box City 2014,” hosted by the Monmouth church.
Church members slept in cardboard boxes and raised nearly $15,000 to support Family Promise, a homeless family advocacy group. Five times a year, the Monmouth church also welcomes homeless people to live in its building for a week.
