Upper School Students Volunteer with Bridges Outreach

On Sunday, April 23, MBS students gathered in the Dining Hall, where they made more than 150 bag lunches to help feed those in need through Bridges Outreach.

Students Andi Bergman ’25, Peter Cross ’24, Gabbie Digeronimo ’26, Charlie Gibbs ’23, Sarah Marine ’26, Alice McNamara ’24, Jawaad Travis ’25, Gabby Wolin ’24, made sandwiches and snack bags in the Dining Hall on Sunday morning before participating in the “Bridges run” and hand-delivering the lunches.

MBS participates in three “Bridges runs” a year. Community service is a cornerstone of the Morristown Beard School educational experience, and helps MBS students build character and gain self-confidence on their journey to becoming productive and socially responsible citizens.

Founded in 1988, Bridges reaches out to the homeless in New York City, Irvington, Summit, and Newark every week. The organization combats homelessness through volunteer-driven outreach and individual case management focusing on health, housing, and independence. They form relationships with those experiencing homelessness while meeting their most urgent needs.
