Midnight Run

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED! Midnight Run brings clothing, food, and a little companionship to homeless people living on the streets of Manhattan.

Bet Am Shalom is one of many Westchester houses of worship and civic groups that sign up for routes and dates.
We generally participate once every quarter, on a Saturday night. 

Preparations will take place at 7:30 pm at BAS.
Donations should be dropped off by 7:15 p.m.

We MUST know in advance who will be bringing what food and supplies for the run, who will be doing prep, and who will be driving/going on the Run.

If you're interested in going on the Run (including driving) please contact Bob Miller

For food, supplies and prep please contact Judy Zendell.

FOOD DONATIONS - please contact Judy Zendell to find out what is needed.
