Midnight Run Service Opportunity!
Midnight Run - November 25, 2012 Meeting at the Diocese of Rockville Centre 50 North Park Avenue @ 7:30 - Returning by 12a.m.
Don't know what a Midnight Run is? Midnight Run is an opportunity to serve those without homes, those who often do work, but come "home" to a box because what they are making isn't enough to put a real roof over their heads. When the weather changes and begins to get colder we often "complain" about how cold it is - and then we go back to our warm homes. Imagine how cold, uncomfortable and dehumanizing it is sleeping on the ground or in a doorway. Imagine having to rely on someone else to give you a pair of socks. Well, this is what many of the homeless have to do each day. So, what is Midnight Run? ~ not a solution to homelessness, but rather a bond between those of us who have homes and those who don't. It is an opportunity to forge a relationship of understanding with those who have very little. Although Midnight Run isn't a solution to homelessness - through our commitment - solutions may evolve! If you'd like to volunteer to go out with other young adults to bring food, clothing and comfort to our homeless friends, please e-mail [masked] by Wednesday, November 21. If you are unable to join us please consider donating things like socks and other basic necessities. Prayer is also great. Vheck out midnightrun.org for more info.
