College of Mount St. Vincent students help homeless through volunteer program

Students who wish to engage in volunteer work during their time at an institution of higher learning, may want to consider enrolling at the College of Mount St. Vincent. According to, students at the school have been helping the community by participating in the Midnight Run program.

Through the initiative, learners have been bringing care packages to the homeless for more than a decade.

"I had the pleasure to be part of the sandwich-making about seven or eight times this semester," Bridgette Guevara, student at the school, told the news source. "It's been great. It's not every day that we think about the homeless, but helping out I know that at least this way, once or twice a month they will have something."

Sister Cecilia Harriendorf, director of Campus Ministries at the college, told the media outlet that dozens of students join in the Midnight Run programs and nearly 300 of the 1,500 members of the school's student body take part in some charity program or another.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, overall employment of nonprofit workers is expected to increase over the next several years.
