ORANGE - Members of the Pilgrim Fellowship Senior Youth Group braved the cold and slept outside this weekend to address the issue of homelessness in Connecticut.

The teens built homes out of cardboard boxes and spent last night sleeping in them. The volunteers say the event was done not only to raise awareness, but raise money for their group's projects.

Money raised from the event went to Habitat for Humanity, who will build a new house in Bridgeport with the funds.
