On Sunday, October 6th, MBS students helped feed the homeless in Irvington as they volunteered with Bridges Outreach on their first “Bridges run” of the school year.
The students met in the MBS Dining Hall early Sunday morning and made more than 100 bagged lunches. Afterwards, they went to Civic Square in Irvington where they handed them out to those in need.
In addition, for the Senior Class Service Project, each senior advisory filled a backpack with donated toiletries which were also handed out at the Bridges Run.
MBS students and faculty participants included: Penelope Ehrbar ’23, Anna Ferrier ’22, Ben Ferrier ’21, Adam Giaquinto ’20, Charlie Gibbs ’23, Justin Givner ’23, Mason Guida ’20, Andrew Holbrook, Aaron Hong ’23, Camryn Ohl ’22, Sharon Phelan, Rachel Platt, Ria Shah ’23, and Alexandra Strauss ’23.
Founded in 1988, Bridges reaches out to the homeless in New York City, Newark, Irvington, and Summit every week. To learn more about Bridges Outreach, visit www.bridgesoutreach.org
