Newburgh Cardboard Challenge

October 10, 2015 @ 1:30 pm - 6:00 pm

Safe Harbors is hosting the first Global Cardboard Challenge in Newburgh!

It will be located in the lot on the corner of Broadway, Liberty where, in the upcoming year, Safe Harbors will be developing a park and outdoor performance space for the community.

For more information on Newburgh’s Cardboard Challenge:

“Inspired by the short film, ‘Caine’s Arcade,’ the Global Cardboard Challenge is an annual event presented by the Imagination Foundation that celebrates child creativity and the role communities can play in fostering it. Kids of all ages are invited to build anything they can dream up using cardboard, recycled materials and imagination.”

We are ALSO looking to gather any recyclable materials (cardboard boxes, plastic containers, tape, paint, etc.) to enable building. We will be holding a Material Drop Off Days on Tuesday, October 6 and Wednesday, October 7, on the entrance of the Historic Ritz Theater on Ann Street.

Other ways to help: – Become a ‘maker’ for the event: Host a small team to supervise a small group of children and inspire. Please contact me if anyone in the community is interested.

Spread the word: Join us on October 10th and bring family and friends from your community. Pack a lunch and enjoy a picnic in the park!
