CLICK HERE FOR THE MIDNIGHT RUN REFLECTION FORM
On November 10 & 26, December 7, January 19, February 20* & March 8, SFP will partner with the organization called Midnight Run. The purpose of the organization is to build positive relationships between those who have homes and those who do not. SFP faculty, staff and student volunteers arrive on campus at 7:00 p.m. to prepare food and coffee, and sort hundreds of donations of clothing that the school community has collected.
Part of the "prep time" is used by the Campus Ministers and adult coordinators to identify stereotypes and begin a discussion about who we might meet on the streets. Then, we load up the SFP buses and head off to the designated meeting areas assigned to us by Midnight Run.
The most powerful part of the experience is distributing the donations directly to people living on the streets in Manhattan. We try to make sure every sandwich bag or cup of coffee is accompanied with a smile and usually we receive a heartfelt thank you.
The buses return at approximately 1:00 a.m. and participants are asked to respond to reflection questions sent to them by e-mail.
Over 100 students participate in this program.
Permission forms should be signed and turn in to Mr. Vogelson's office or Campus Ministry Office to guarantee your spot on the bus.
