The LIfespire Bowling Program: One of the many programs that LifeSpire offers for the mentally and physically handicapped is this bowling program, which takes place each Sunday. The program takes place at Jib Lanes. Our students meet at the bowling lanes and help the participants bowl, keep score and clean up etc from 9:30am-12:30pm.
Briarwood Shelter Program: Since its inception in 1994, Molloy students have been volunteering to tutor children at a local homeless shelter after school for 4 days a week. Our students serve as a mentor to these children.
New York Hospital of Queens - Open to Juniors and Seniors only. This is a very intense and hands-on program at NYHQ. Volunteers will get a first-hand experience about the numerous ways a hospital works. As with all Molloy service programs, there is a one-on-one aspect to the patients at the hospital. Volunteers must commit to 1 day a week for 4 hours a day for a minimum of 3 months. This is also a wonderful opportunity for those looking to be in the healthcare field.
Mission Collections and Drives:
We have various drives depending on need to support local and worldwide causes. Here are some of our causes:
- Operation Christmas Child: Care packages are made for children world-wide.
- Toy Drive: New toys are donated to 7 different charities.
- Coat Drive: Annually in late October/early November
Mission collections are held every year for various local and world-wide missions- as the need arises. We will also have a Fast-A-Thon during Lent to help raise awareness for a particular cause.
As with all of our collections and drives, other financial donations are gladly accepted as well- always knowing that 100% of all donations go directly to the cause being sponsored. Contributions to Archbishop Molloy High School are tax-deductible to the extent that the law allows. Archbishop Molloy High School is recognized as a 501(c)(3) by the I.R.S..
The Right to Life Club aims to promote a "Culture of Life" at Molloy throughout the school year. The club participates annually in the Right to Life march in Washington DC as well as running the Solidarity Sleep-out at Molloy.
For over thirty summers, the Marist Brothers have sponsored one-week summer camps for the handicapped. Last summer alone, over 800 handicapped children and adults had the opportunity for a week in the country in Esopus, New York, giving their families a much-appreciated respite. These camps serve the mentally handicapped, the deaf, children with cancer, and children with terminal illnesses. Student volunteers work at these camps, where there is a one-to-one ratio of counselors to campers. Some who started this program as students continue to volunteer as adults, bringing their wives and children with them.
For the campers, this program provides an opportunity that is truly unique, as most camps cannot accommodate their special needs.
