Church holds annual sleepout for the homeless

MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – For the 26th year in a row, a Mechanicsburg church held its annual sleepout for the homeless.

Over 75 teenagers spent Friday night in the boxes.

This year, Mechanicsburg Brethren in Christ’s youth group also participated.

The event raises funds to support local homeless families.
