The event is being sponsored by the Girl Scouts, the Rescue Mission the Chapel House and the Pet Food Pantry.
Kids attending will be asked to bring a cardboard box and sleeping bag to the event. They will receive a homeless dinner and also participate in crafts and listen to guest speakers.
The organizers hope the event will build awareness about youth homelessness and teach kids important lessons in empathy.
