Newburgh, N.Y. -
The end of the semester brought an act of kindness from the
students of Mount Saint Mary College, who filled a truck trailer
with food and clothing donations for the Newburgh Ministry
Through a program spearheaded by Roger May, assistant director
of Campus Ministry, and the college’s resident life directors,
Mount students were encouraged to donate non-perishable food items
and gently-used clothing as they packed up for the semester.
May was pleased with the campaign’s results.
“I’m blown away by the students’ generosity,” he said. “They
could have kept walking and taken everything to the dumpster in one
shot. But they made it a point to stop by the donation center.”
May also thanked residence directors Colin Seifrit, Michael
Russo, and Jennifer Garton, as well as James Whittaker of Mount
facilities, for their aid.
