The Adelphi chapter of Circle K International‘s midnight run on Friday, March 9, wasn’t for snacks—but for charity.
Members of the Adelphi chapter gathered in lower Manhattan at 10:00 p.m., working with St. Mark Coptic Church in Old Woodbury, New York, to donate a total of 150 sandwiches and 100 shirts, plus care packages of toiletries and snacks. They finished near Penn Station at 2:00 a.m.
Adelphi’s efforts to give back didn’t go unnoticed by Circle K International. At the 56th Annual New York District Circle K Convention in Albany, New York, held from March 16 to March 18, Adelphi won Distinguished Club, Outstanding Paperwork, Outstanding Fundraiser event and Outstanding Secretary Award (Frederick Grimshaw).
“It was a fantastic time and we were able to learn a lot as well as see our friends from across New York Circle K Clubs,” said junior Charles Hager, president of the Adelphi chapter, adding that he will be serving as the lieutenant governor for Long Island Circle K this upcoming service year.
Circle K International is the world’s largest collegiate student-led service organization. Adelphi Circle K participates in many local service projects, including Ronald McDonald House, Interfaith Nutrition Network (The INN) and Food Not Bombs, as well as food drives and park cleanups. It also fundraises for several national and international charities, such as the March of Dimes.
