NORTH ATTLEBORO, MA- Getting a feel for what it’s like to be homeless all while raising money, a group of kids are sleeping outside for the weekend in North Attleboro.

100 kids from neighboring churches are sleeping inside cardboard boxes and sleeping bags.

With it being one of the coldest days of the season so far, the group is experiencing the harsh reality of being homeless.

Loren Weyland said, “It’s been freezing but we try to keep good spirits because we get to go home to a warm bed and not everyone gets that.”

The kids are collecting donations that will go to area shelters and food pantries.
