ICAP Fellows Give Back and Raise Awareness About the Coronavirus Pandemic

On Sunday, February 23, 2020, ICAP Fellows came together to serve the community at KEEN (Kids Enjoy Exercise Now). KEEN is based on a simple idea: pair a trained volunteer coach with a young person with disabilities and let them discover what they can accomplish together.ICAP fellows (pictured above) worked with kids on various sports activities at Francis Key Scott Elementary School in Arlington, VA.

And, in response to the global Coronavirus pandemic, on March 27, ICAP convened a Virtual Town Hall featuring various speakers who shared their expertise, including Dr. Leena Mathew, who is serving on the front lines. ICAP Fellows Desirée Cormier Smith, Senior Director with Albright Stonebridge Group, discussed local community service opportunities; Eric Carr, Vice President, International Research Momentum Advisors, discussed the coronavirus and global markets; and Eric Henderson briefed on ICAP’s advocacy efforts related to the Coronavirus.  

Dr. Matthew is accepting in-kind donations of personal protective equipment such as masks, gloves, and hand sanitizers, among other things. If you would like to donate items, please contact Earl Carr at Excarr@gmail.com for the shipping information.
