Members of St. John's Lutheran and St. Francis Episcopal worked together to feed and help to homeless of New York City. The event was coordinated through Midnight Run, an organization dedicated to helping the homeless of New York City. Eleven volunteers drove into New York City the night of May 6 in two cars and one small truck, which had all the food, clothing, and toiletries to be distributed. The weather cooperated by having a break in the rain that had been falling all day. The truck was almost empty by the end of the night.
There were many ways to help: donating clothes, food, or money, sorting and organizing the clothing and toiletries, and preparing bagged meals. Long time St. John's member Bruce Williams is pictured helping out by getting ready to drive his pickup truck the St. Francis full of donated supplies. We thank all the volunteers who helped with the event!
