Your Health and Well-Being Matter to Us

March 13, 2020



Dear Valuable Community Member,



DonCARES is committed to providing safe environments for all of our mentors, mentees, partners, and volunteers. Our leadership team believes that we should make the following decisions effective immediately to protect all parties within our organization's reach.  


  • All one-on-one mentoring, tutoring activities, empowerment events, and workshops will be halted (effective immediately) until further notice from our executive director.

  • In addition, All previously planned and scheduled events are canceled and no other events, in-person meetings, and service events will be planned/scheduled until further notice.


With the recent events surrounding the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and Temple University's transition to online and alternative forms of learning, we want to wish all of our college student partners and fellow organizations a safe and productive remainder of the spring semester.


If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us by email at


Well Wishes,


Donovan Forrest


Executive Director,

DonCARES of Philadelphia, Inc.
