JOLIET – The Joliet West High School National Honor Society is giving back to the community through a partnership with the Purple Project, an organization that spreads acts of kindness by collecting donations and items for young mothers in need.
To kick off the partnership, Purple Project founders Joe and Sherry Anicich recently spoke to the students during a powerful presentation that told the story of the organization’s foundation, which was established to honor their daughter Alisha Bromfield and her unborn child, Ava, who were murdered in 2012.
While alive, Alisha spread the message of choosing love, not hate. To continue Alisha’s message, the Purple Project extends love and hope by giving financial and emotional support to single mothers in the community.
This year’s goal is to provide support to three single mothers that were identified by the Purple Project. NHS students are collecting infant supplies and monetary donations.
