SJU COVID-19 Response: Community Support


The crisis of the COVID-19 virus (coronavirus) has impacted communities across the NYC area. During the coronavirus epidemic, we will be separated. But at a time of immense separation and distancing, we still can stick together. 

Keep the distance but lend a hand. Wherever possible, SJU strives to lend a helping hand for communities greatly affected in times of need. During this crisis, there are many left vulnerable and with limited resources and in great need of assistance. In an effort to rally community support, below you will find a list of remote/virtual service opportunities (literacy/tutoring for students, activities for the disabled and elderly, fundraisers and drives for organizations seeking to help struggling families, and more). It's time for us to think creatively about how we can lend a helping.

Feel free as well, if you know organizations that are in need of support please contact Fedaling Agwumezie, Assistant Director of Outcomes Assessments and Community Partnerships, (


Please continue to stay safe and healthy maintaining CDC best practices to prevent illness and avoid exposure to the virus: 
  1.  Maintain social-distancing: Limit face-to-face contact with others is the best way to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
  2. Wash hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds. Always wash immediately after removing gloves and after contact with a person who is sick.
  3. Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others. Everyone should wear a cloth face cover when they have to go out in public, for example to the grocery store or to pick up other necessities.
