Friends in Deed

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. In this list of community service opportunities, we have gathered a number of opportunities for your participation. If you have questions or would like to submit an opportunity, contact EJC and Center for Ethical Leadership Director Natalie Randolph '96 at

Do you know people doing good deeds? Many of our families are continuing the Sidwell Friends commitment to the Quaker value of service. We'd like to share these stories to inspire others to serve. All ages and grades are welcome! Share a story for our Friends In Deed campaign by emailing and include #sidwellfriendsindeed in the subject line. Thank you!
