Miracle on 125th Street

On December 9th, BHGHNY scholars and staff traveled to Harlem to partner with Vice Chair of the Board of Trustees, Mary Lanning in an effort to feed New York's homeless and poor. In the basement of a nearby church, scholars prepared hundreds of meals and decorated bags that were to be stuffed with pastrami sandwiches, fresh fruit and blankets. After hours of preparation, Scholars bundled up to face NYC's winter cold. From a distance, one could see a line stretching an entire city block dotted with people of all ages lining up to receive a meal and supplies for the winter. Scholars spent hours interacting with those individuals patiently waiting for assistance. Under the direction of Sister Lanning, they provided not only meals and blankets, but a holiday warmth and affection that otherwise may have been missing in the lives of the hundreds of people waiting on the corner of 125th street.
