Molloy College Hosts Annual Boxtown Fundraiser

Molloy College in Rockville Centre, New York held it’s Boxtown event last month. Over 100 students turned out to support Bethany House, an organization dedicated to helping homeless women and children in Nassau County. This is Molloy¬†Campus Ministries’¬†17th year hosting Boxtown. Sister Diane who coordinated the event stated “Although our night does not truly reflect the tragedy of homelessness, it does at least raise our consciousness to what is happening right here in Nassau County.”

During the event students are provided with boxes, in which they spend the night. The event creates a sense of community on campus and helps put students in the shoes of the women and children Bethany House helps everyday.
