Donations Spring 2016

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 charitable organization.

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.
