Alyssa Aprahamian, a Villa senior, and her brother Will, were spotlighted on local TV channel 6ABC for their H.O.P.E (Help Other People Eat) campaign. The siblings are currently spending their Saturdays delivering H.O.P.E. signs to lawns around Chester County with her brother, Will, a freshmen at Malvern Prep. The H.O.P.E. campaign is the response of this brother-sister team to what they were hearing about in the news during the COVID-19 lockdown — rising unemployment and food insecurity.
Alyssa said, ”We knew some parents were losing their jobs and people were in need of food, so we wanted to do something to help.” Alyssa and Will certainly have helped, and are continuing to do so. To date, they have raised over $2,700.00 for the Chester County Food Bank through the sales of their H.O.P.E. (Help Other People Eat) campaign lawn signs which sell for $15.00.
Alyssa and Will created the design for the lawn signs and ordered 100 signs to start. Due to their social media outreach and the generosity of the community, they have ordered many additional signs and are delivering them after they finish their school work. H.O.P.E. campaign signs can be ordered through Venmo @hopelawnsigns2020. They will be delivered to your lawn through contactless delivery.
Alyssa and Will are grateful to their parents, two older brothers, their friends, and the community for supporting their venture.
Alyssa and Will, thank you for bringing HOPE to so many people.
