Fraternity brothers experience what it's like to be homeless in winter

One group of fraternity brothers is experiencing what it's like to be homeless.  Members of the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity at Edinboro University are camping out in the cold for a week.

Two at a time, the men are spending hours in a small, wooden box covered with tarps.  They will stay there in shifts of 24 hours each day for a full week. 

Member Bryce Trygar says, "It could happen to anybody, just like circumstance could make you lose your house and, I don't know, here especially, it's really cold and brutal in the winter."

The fraternity brothers are camped out at the corner of Meadville and East Normal streets.  They will be collecting monetary donations for the Erie City Mission and feminine hygiene products for an organization called, 'I Support the Girls'.
