Service At Sunrise: Mount Students Volunteer At St. Mary’s Church Pantry

Service At Sunrise: Mount Students Volunteer At St. Mary’s Church Pantry

While their peers were waking up and getting ready for early morning classes on Friday, September 20, several Mount Saint Mary College students were already awake and volunteering at St. Mary’s Church in Newburgh. In a joint venture of the Mount’s School of Nursing and the college’s chapter of Catholic Relief Services (CRS), students sorted boxes of donated food and packed the items for distribution. St. Mary’s outreach distributes fresh meat, fruits and vegetables, packaged and canned goods, and more, which are donated to them by Hudson Valley Food Pantry. The church also distributes clothing to residents in need in the greater Newburgh area. This outreach project services hundreds of residents each month.
