Harvard Longwood Campus Welcomes the Season of Giving
Highlights from the 2012 Season of Giving, which provided Harvard Longwood Campus employees with an opportunity to share messages of appreciation with each other and to help our local community through a voluntary food and gift drive. The Season of Giving kicked off with a noontime lecture on gratitude followed by a thank-you card writing event. Below, please find a list of events that took place across the Harvard Longwood Campus, and accompanying details.
This special lecture given by Harvard professor Lachlan Forrow explored the many positive aspects of expressing gratitude.
Speaker: Lachlan Forrow
HMS Associate Professor of Medicine, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center
Director of Ethics and Palliative Care Programs, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center
President, The Albert Schweitzer Fellowship
Thank-You Card Stations:
We took a moment after the Talk@12 to write notes of appreciation. Thank-you card stations were available directly after the Talk.
As part of the Giving Thanks campaign, the Harvard Longwood Campus held a canned food drive from November 15 – 30. Boxes were located throughout the three schools. The boxes were collected on the last day of the food drive by the Phillips Brooks House Association,a student-run, community-based, nonprofit public service organization at Harvard University, and distributed to shelters located in Cambridge and Boston.
Holiday Toy Drive:
Continuing the “Season of Giving” into the winter holidays, the Harvard Longwood Campus helped parents who may not have had the resources to buy presents for their own children by participating in the Phillips Brooks House Holiday Gift Drive.
Harvard Community Gifts, Harvard’s Workplace Charitable Giving Program
Those interested in giving through financial support were invited to join a University-wide tradition and community of caring. Through the Harvard Community Gifts program,HMS, HSDM and HSPH employees gave to their favorite charities through 2013 via Harvard payroll deduction, debit/credit card or check.
