Loomis Chaffee Student Council held a successful Red Cross blood drive on Friday, April 19.
At Loomis Chaffee you will be part of a community of students, faculty, and staff inspiring positive change in the world. Serving the common good is part of the ethos of the school and dates back to our Founders' vision more than 100 years ago.
Today a full-time community service coordinator, working alongside the student-led Pelican Service Organization (PSO), plans the wide variety of service opportunities — both local and further afield — available to you. In fact nearly all Loomis students participate in community service activities during their time on the Island. These activities are woven into all aspects of life at the school so wherever your interests may lie and whatever your availablity of time you are bound to find an opportunity to help others. And if you can't find that opportunity, we will help you create it.
