Students in Hamilton’s Program in New York City went to the Bowery Mission homeless shelter/soup kitchen to help unload trucks, prepare and serve food and clean up after the meal on Oct. 26.
After a short orientation they toured the building and learned about the Bowery Mission’s philosophies and commitment to religious beliefs. The Bowery Mission has served the homeless and the hungry in NYC since 1879.
Students saw the dormitories and learned about many of the programs the Bowery Mission offers. The Bowery Mission serves hundreds of meals every day, and they are committed to making sure men, women and children are able to eat. Participants felt this was a great experience, and it made us feel like we were making a difference in people’s lives.
