“The Block Party Trailer is more than a party in a box—it is an opportunity to BLESS those we live, work and play with. Its purpose is to provide an easy opportunity, as well as resources, for Beulah-owned small groups, MSCs, departments, and campuses to host a block party in their area. It is equipped with all the goods needed to host a party for 50-100 people; all the host group will need to bring are refreshments, disposable tableware and, most importantly, the people. A Block Party cannot happen by itself and many volunteers are needed to make it a success. For more info on requirements click the availability link below, pick your date, complete the form and an email info package will be sent to you detailing all of the information.
