Paramus students experience what it's like in the cold

Students at Paramus Catholic High School spent the night trying to experience what it's like to be homeless and in the cold.More than 50 students from the school got firsthand experience Sunday night about what it feels like when there is nowhere to go. The students stayed outside until it was time to attend class on Monday. Joe Wilson, the dean of the campus' ministry, says he believes the students now have a better understanding of what the homeless go through. He says many Americans are just a few paychecks away from being on the street.The students will be donating the items they used for the lesson to the Bridges Outreach Program.
