Midnight Run

Every winter for the past twelve years, the SCC Youth Action Committee (YAC) has partnered with Hitchcock Church on a Midnight Run, in which volunteers participate in carefully planned, late-night delivery missions bringing food, clothing, blankets and personal care items to the homeless poor of New York City. Each year the YAC conducts a clothing drive in advance of this Run, and collects donations for the purchase of food for the 10 gallons of soup and 100 bag lunches that they prepare to take to the homeless. SCC members of all ages help to sort clothing and prepare food for the Run, which has as its goal the forging of a bond between housed and homeless people by establishing a foundation of sharing and caring from which solutions may evolve.
