Stanners Support November Donation Drive

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, Stanners, faculty, and staff participated in a donation drive run by Campus Ministry, followed by a Thanksgiving prayer service. This year’s drive benefited two tremendous organizations, The Friar Suppliers and The Harding Ford Vision Food Pantry.

The Friar Suppliers support the poor and hungry in Haiti. They build homes for those in need and operate an orphanage. They have helped thousands of Haitians to be fed, housed, and cared for. The Harding Ford Vision Pantry is located in Jamaica, Queens, NY. They serve hundreds of people every week on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Many of our students have provided community service at this pantry over the past few weeks, including a group of students who will represent Molloy at the pantry this Saturday, November 19th.

In total, our community collected and donated about 30 full boxes of food to the pantry, and five barrels of food for transport to Haiti! Bishop Brown, the founder of the pantry, spoke to our students about the urgency for food in his community, and was extremely grateful for Molloy’s donations. Mr. Charles Moran, a representative of The Friar Suppliers, followed up with our Campus Ministers and shared, “I am continually inspired by our Marist Molloy community and how our students embrace their roles as servant leaders and agents of justice.”

Thank you to all who participated in our Thanksgiving Donation Drive!
