RYE, N.Y. -- For the twelfth straight year, Resurrection Grammar School's 8th grade students have volunteered in Midnight Runs to New York City homeless shelters. During each run, students provide clothing, blankets, shoes and food to approximately 100 homeless men and women.

In addition, the school’s seventh grade students was involved by preparing homemade soup to serve on the runs. SUVs were filled with donated clothing and food for the homeless and made five pre-designated stops on the streets of Manhattan to serve the needy.

“The Midnight Runs are the core focus of our 8th graders’ community service efforts,” stated Resurrection School Principal, Sister Anne Massell. “This is truly a community event as all of our supplies are provided through generous donations from Resurrection school families and church parishoners,” added The Resurrection students have already helped over 200 people during Midnight Runs in September and October, with a third run planned for later this Fall.

In over 1,000 relief missions per year, Midnight Run volunteers from churches, synagogues, schools and other civic groups distribute food, clothing, blankets and personal care items to the homeless poor on the streets of New York City.
