ORLANDO, Fla. - A "sleep out" fundraiser to help the homeless has paid off in Orlando.
Last week a group of central Florida executives slept outside on cardboard to raise money and awareness for homeless teens as part of a nationwide effort.
Hundreds across the country did the same thing.
Now, officials at Covenant House said they were able to open up more rooms and add 12 beds because of the fundraiser.
More than 50 people are on a waiting list for the shelter that had to downsize because of a lack of funding.
