Student Leadership and Engagement (SLE) sponsors this bi-annual event every fall semester along with the Midnight Run student committee and every spring semester with the GOLD Leadership cohort.
Each semester the students collect donations of clothing, food, and toiletries to give out directly to the homeless on the streets of New York City. The Midnight Run is a non-profit that coordinates “runs” in the city for different organizations to give out items directly to those in need on the streets of NYC.
This great opportunity is open to all undergraduate students in the fall. In order to participate in this program, students must join the Midnight Run student committee which meets once a week for six weeks prior to the night of the program. During these meetings the student committee is responsible for planning the collection of donations and planning fundraising events. The committee spots are limited and are a first-come, first-served basis.
Fall 2015 Midnight Run is on Wednesday, April 20th. Students will leave campus around 9:00pm and will return around 2:00am. Transportation is provided.
