Friends In Deed: Supporting Students, Helping Friends

This campaign ended on May 01, 2020, but you can still make a gift to Sidwell Friends School by clicking here!

Like so many of us, Sidwell Friends students recognized their neighbors’ needs at this time of crisis and asked, “how can I help others while practicing social distancing?”

United by their shared commitments to service and community, and with the guidance of the School’s Center for Ethical Leadership, Sidwell Friends students have put their resources, time, and ingenuity to work. Luke ’20, Ian ’20, and Kamran ’21 create 3-D medical masks by repurposing equipment and materials once earmarked for their robotics competition. Sophia ’25 leads a network of volunteers to sew face masks for medical centers around the DC area. Their efforts are so crucial that medical professionals are contacting the School to request additional resources. 

These and other Sidwell Friends students have moved quickly to develop solutions to critical challenges during this pandemic. Now, they urgently need your support to continue their service. 

You and other alumni can outfit these students with the 3D printers, face shield materials, fabric, and sewing equipment needed to continue these service projects for the next three months. Your contribution towards our $5,919 goal enables Sidwell Friends students to create face shields and face masks using 3D printers on loan from the Sidwell Friends Robotics Club. Through your generosity, you will join students in putting critical equipment in the hands of medical providers when they need it the most. 

Please give today and ensure Sidwell Friends students can continue this lifesaving service to local communities.
