Youth group braves cold to raise awareness for the homeless

Dozens of teens in Orange braved the cold Friday to raise awareness about homelessness in the community.



The Orange Congregational Church Youth Group gathered Friday night to sleep outside in a shelter made of cardboard. Organizers said the cardboard house is almost luxury compared to how many homeless have to live. 



People in the community have been donating all month to support the event. The children are seeking to raise money for the Columbus House and Habitat for Humanity.



The group will continue to accept donations after the event.
