Support This Year's Final Friends In Deed Campaign
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. Sophia ’25 leads a network of volunteers to sew face masks for medical centers around the DC area. Gabi '25 creates soap care packages for essential workers and those in need. Their efforts are so crucial that medical professionals are contacting the School to request additional resources. We are proud to announce our final Friends In Deed campaign to support our students with needed supplies to continue their great work with service to our local communities. The campaign will run through June 22 to provide Gabi and Sophia with needed supplies.
