Students Collect iPads for Medical Center

The Prep’s Davis brothers took a call to action to heart to help ease the pain of a pandemic

DANVERS, MA - Charlie ’20, Chase ’21, and Cooper ’24 Davis of St. John's Prep all volunteer regularly at The Open Door Food Pantry in Gloucester. But because of guidelines in response to COVID-19, volunteers now need to be 21 and older to help. The brothers were frustrated by not being able to help at the food pantry, especially when its constituents needed it most.

The trio was looking for other ways to help when, earlier this month, St. John’s notified its community that Tufts Medical Center is actively seeking donations of used iPads for their patients to connect virtually with their families. In fact, Catholic Conference institutions (Boston College High School, Catholic Memorial School, Malden Catholic, St. John's Prep, and Xaverian Brothers High School) had decided to participate in the initiative as a collective.
