Students sleep outside to raise awareness about homelessness

Posted:

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL)-- It's cold outside, but that didn't stop students in Cedar Rapids from sleeping outside overnight Thursday to o raise awareness about homelessness.

The students, who are from Kennedy High School say homelessness is an even bigger issue following the floods.

"Since Waypoint, I believe, was impacted by the flood somehow, we need to somehow give donations to them,'' Kennedy 11th-grader Joshua Siegel said.

During the camp out, students collected money, food and clothes to donate to homeless shelters.
