Midnight Run/Breakfast Run
Midnight Run/Breakfast Run is a volunteer organization based in Dobbs Ferry, New York. Approximately 150 organizations in the Tri-State area including churches, synagogues, schools and other civic groups provide and distribute food, clothing, blankets and personal care items to the homeless poor on the streets of New York City. The relief efforts create a forum for trust, sharing, understanding and affection. The human exchange, rather than the exchange of goods, is the essence of the Runs. Through the Runs, volunteers come to see the homeless as real people and the homeless men and women learn that the volunteers care for them. Our Parish currently performs Runs aimed primarily at adult participation as well as youth participation. (See Midnight Run/Breakfast Run descriptions for both adults and youth below.)
Volunteers donate gently used clothing, sneakers, shoes, overcoats, blankets, backpacks, new underwear, new socks and new travel size toiletries; assist with sorting and tagging of donated items; shop for food; assist with food preparation; drive and/or distribute food and items to the homeless; or provide financial support for miscellaneous costs of food and other items not donated.
