In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Stevenson Giving Day, originally scheduled for April 7, has been postponed. Simply put, the festive spirit we had intended to animate this day does not fit the tenor of our present moment.
Pirates Give Back on April 7
In its place, we are inviting you to facilitate a collective expression of Pirate Nation’s energy, optimism, and commitment to service in the face of COVID-19 by considering how you can safely serve your community on April 7. We invite you to share your creative ideas about how best to do so with other members of Pirate Nation by tagging the school on Facebook or Instagram, engaging with the school's posts, and by using #piratesgiveback. You might offer to make a grocery run for someone who can’t risk leaving home, send an appreciative note to someone whose job places them on the front lines of crisis response, volunteer for your local Meals on Wheels program, or call an elderly relative or neighbor just to check-in. We know many of you are on the front lines and in harm’s way, working under tremendous pressure as nurses, doctors, first responders, and public health experts. We invite you to share what you’re doing, so that your fellow Pirates can send appreciation and encouragement your way.
