NEXT MIDNIGHT RUN:   Dec 24, 2022

Each Christmas Eve, the Woodlands Confirmation Class partners with Midnight Run to deliver fresh food, gently-used clothing and blankets, and new underwear, socks and toiletries to those less fortunate who are spending Christmas on the streets of NYC. You can help in the following ways:

  • Used Clothing: 
    Accepting clothing Dec 11 - Dec 18 only:  Bring gently used clothing to the temple - we need DARK-colored (black, navy) warm MEN'S basic clothing in large and XL+ sizes - pants, shirts, sweatshirts/sweaters, jackets, shoes, boots, gloves, hats, belts. A small amount of women's clothing is also welcome with the same requirements.
    Important Note – What Folks Don’t Want: Clothing that will make them stand out (hence, no light or bright colors); clothing that might be stolen (hence, no expensive sneakers); clothing out of season (they have no place to store it); fancy clothing (not practical). Particularly sought after are puffer-type jackets and warm hoodie sweatshirts.

  • Amazon Wish List: 
    Buy new underwear, socks and toiletries from our Amazon wish list: WCT Confirmation Class Midnight Run. Items will be sent directly to Woodlands.
     
  • Oneg Fun:
    Help make sandwiches and food bags for the Run at the oneg after shabbat services on Fri, Dec 23. (Send email to SocialAction@wct.org)
     
  • Soup:
    Make 2 gallons of hearty soup and bring to temple, heated, just before Run (2 people x 2 gallons) (Send email to SocialAction@wct.org)

  • Go On Run: 
    Sometimes we don’t have enough Confirmation Class families for the Run – but we don’t know this for sure until a day or two before. Let us know if you want to go on the Run and can drive and we will put you on our Call-on List. (SocialAction@wct.org)
