Welcome to the virtual Campaign Coffeehouse

We’re rising to the challenge

We paused normal campaign activities for a time as our DeanTeam community cared for one another and adjusted to this new reality.

Of course, it’s no surprise that—in the face of these obstacles—DeanTeamers wanted to connect, give back, and inspire hope.

And, that’s what the next phase of this campaign is all about.

Dean often says design drives outcomes. So, we’ve cultivated new virtual spaces that empower our big-hearted, people-powered campaign to continue doing what it does best—build community and create positive change.

DeanTeamwork continues, apart—yet together

This campaign is powered by committed, joyful volunteers, just like you, who want to build bridges within our communities—and toward a more hopeful future.

So, while we can’t gather over Sarah’s delicious lattes at the Campaign Coffeehouse—at least, not for now—the phone and text banking, postcard writing, and (virtual) flash mobs will continue in virtual spaces.

Stay connected on Icebreaker

From telling our funniest stories to sharing movies that lift us up—and from celebrating generosity to coming up with creative new ideas, Icebreakers are a refreshing, more personal way to remain connected.

Keep an eye on our social media channels for one-on-one video chat sessions with our inspiring DeanTeam family.

Staying at home is how we help keep ourselves, our families, and our communities safe.

And, thanks to digital tools, like Zoom and Icebreaker, we can continue to forge new friendships and stay connected to old campaign pals—all while making a difference.

We hope to see you there!
