We will not host the annual Riverdale Community Action Day (RCAD) celebration this year because of the pandemic. A virtual event is being planned featuring students and partner service organizations.

Among the organizations to be spotlighted are POTS –Part of the Solution, Citymeals on Wheels, Challenged Athletes Foundation, and Hebrew Home at Riverdale.

RCAD was started in 2008 by Stefanie Firtell Donath ’91, Carolyn Braun Rosen ’92, and Danielle Englebardt ’94 with the goal of demonstrating for current students that service work in their communities does not end upon graduation.

Co-chairs for the 2020 event are Porsche Brooks ’04, Solange Schipani, and Jaime Benjamin Trichon ’97. For more information, please contact the RCAD co-chairs at
