The amazing selflessness and service by Loomis students during World War II was best exemplified through student interactions with other schools and young people (specifically refugees) during the Second World War. Interestingly, the general tone and spirit of nearly all Loomis Log articles during wartime was centered on patriotism and enthusiasm. Log writers encouraged other students to donate to charities such as the Newington Home for Crippled Children, writing, “We should feel proud of the fact that we have had the opportunity to help these charities… We should feel proud of the great service we have done for our country” . Students also aided interned Japanese-Americans during the war. They were not only champions of patriotism on campus, but also put in incredible effort toward other schools and kids.

While Loomis students were fortunate enough to help and serve the country during the war, students at Avon Old Farms were sent home, as the school was forced to close during World War II, and was used as a rehabilitation facility for wounded army veterans. One 1945 Loomis Log article titled, “Bind up the Nation’s Wounds”, detailed ideas regarding how Loomis students could offer help to these wounded veterans. The writer explained, “We don’t see why it wouldn’t be perfectly possible for the students to get some sort of entertainment together…Are there any volunteers?” . Again, students provided their community and the country with more than merely bodies, but rather energy, ingenuity, and benevolence.
Loomis also undertook the responsibility of sponsoring a French school in need, called “Ecole du Montcel” near Versailles through the Save the Children Foundation. Loomis contributed a minimum of $150 yearly to the school, often donating much more. Loomis had a connection with the Montcel school from 1928 to 1938, when exchange students were sent there, so the donations seemed to have a truly meaningful purpose. During the exchange program, about five Loomis boys traveled to France every summer to study at the school for six weeks. One of these students commented, “We have come to know how valuable is the association of American and French boys together in the same school. This summer has made us realize how great a means it is in bringing two countries to know and understand each other.”

Both the Loomis and Chaffee schools became the foster parents of a 14 year old Italian refugee named Rosaria Lantrieina, made possible by the Foster Parents’ Plan for War Children. Loomis and Chaffee remitted $15 a month for the girl, and they received a photograph and description of the girl and her life. This description stated, “…for the last eight years her mother has been a poor struggling widow, and most of the time it was impossible for her to have Rosaria with her at the home in which she worked.” Rosaria’s home was almost completely destroyed by bombs, and she was one of the few survivors of her area. Rosaria managed to escape even though the Germans attempted to force everyone to stay put.
