Join Mark-Taylor At Cardboard City This Saturday

Posted by & filed under Life at the District at Mountain Vista.

Cardboard City is this Saturday!! Last year was a blast. Our Mark-Taylor Team spent weeks prepping cardboard haunted houses, a castle, a ship and more. The outcome of the boxes was phenomenal and set the standards high for this year.

Family Promise is recognized as the leading volunteer-driven nonprofit, providing services to homeless families, and is the only shelter in Arizona able to accept pets. Holding on to a pet is critical to kids who have lost everything else, including their homes, their toys and their friends. Within eight weeks, 75 percent of the families hosted by Family Promise obtain housing, helping them achieve sustainable independence.
