Grade 8 Students Participate in Hesed Activity Benefiting Midnight Run

Grade 8 students had the opportunity to hear from Jeanne Newman, coordinator for Midnight Run, and Rebecca Lindenbaum, Heschel parent and longtime Midnight Run volunteer. Midnight Run is a volunteer organization dedicated to helping the homeless. This not-for-profit organization coordinates over 1,000 relief missions per year, in which volunteers from churches, synagogues, schools and other civic groups distribute food, clothing, blankets and personal care items to the homeless poor on the streets of New York City.

After the engaging presentation, students helped put together packages for distribution.
