Midnight Run is a volunteer service that provides assistance to distribute food, clothing, blankets and personal care items to the homeless in New York City. The late night efforts create a forum for trust, sharing, affection and understanding. That human exchange, rather than the exchange of goods, is the essence of the Midnight Run mission.
Through Midnight Run, volunteers will see the homeless as people not a commodity and share in their concerns.

Most of the goods distributed by Midnight Run are contributed by friends and member groups. Here is a list of the items we need:
*Clothing. Midnight Run see far more men than women and thankfully we rarely see children. We need ten items for men for every one for women. So our emphasis in contributions is on casual men’s clothing. The most critical items are coats and pants and larger sizes are particularly sought after but we welcome all contributions.
*Food. We need durable items that are easy to store and are used on most Midnight Runs including soup mix (big canisters), cocoa mix, coffee, bottled water, juice boxes, individual fruit cups and individually packaged snack foods.
*Toiletries. We need sample or travel sizes of all basic personal care items.
*Blankets. Midnight Run receives some bulk shipments of industrial strength blankets each year but softer cotton (in summer) or wool blankets or quilts are very much appreciated. We can use towels and washcloths as well.
A form for claiming contributions on your tax returns can be found on the website.
