Midnight Run

"For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, naked and you clothed me..." (Matthew 25: 31-46)

On Sunday, April 29th our community will set out on a mission to feed and clothe the homeless of NYC. Following the Divine Liturgy and the fellowship hour, our volunteers will prepare  food and personal care packages that will be distributed to the people who are homeless. 

Even though it's called "Midnight Run," the groups that participate in the program visit the assigned locations via automobile. The homeless are informed ahead of time where to wait for the groups of volunteers.

We are planning future "Runs," and anyone who wishes to get involved can do so by speaking to Fr. Nathanael or any of the parish council members. We are currently taking stock of the clothing that has been donated and can use numerous items, including shoes, duffle/gym/hand bags, travel-size personal hygiene products. You can also help us by contributing some time in preparing meals and care packages, or by making a monetary contribution that will enable us to purchase necessary supplies. 

We are currently in need of the following supplies/items:
Personal Care Products (can be offered any time):
1. Travel-sized personal care products (toothpaste, soap, skin lotion, deodorant, etc)
2. New & Clean Tube Socks (any color)
3. New & Clean Undergarments for men and women (any color; sizes: medium, large, x-large)
4. X-Large Rubbermaid Plastic Bins to store clothing
