Your unused clothing can make a difference to those in need.
This month, Campus
Ministry invites all students, faculty and staff to participate
in St. John’s University’s Sweatshirt Run.
Throughout November, Campus Ministry will accept sweatshirts in any
size and style that are clean and in good condition. Please drop
off all donations at the department’s main office in Marillac Hall,
Room 239, or at St.
Thomas More Church, both on the Queens, NY,
Student volunteers will distribute the sweatshirts along with
sandwiches to homeless and needy persons during St. John’s Midnight
Runs, one of a variety of Vincentian
Service programs. “People sometimes think we only give
sandwiches,” said Rafael Rivera ’10C, ’14G, a Campus Minister who
is coordinating the effort. “But we also try to provide clean, warm
clothing for people we encounter on the streets.”
