Appreciation for Front Line Workers and Community Members in Need
The Lacrosse Village Initiative was launched in April 2020 to address a growing need in
our communities during the COVID-19 pandemic, in a safe and socially distanced
manner. Led by Senior Conestoga High School Girls Lacrosse Captain Alex Aufiero and
Head Coach Amy Orcutt, Eyekonz Sports Founder and Coach Jasmine Smith and Shipley
High School Girls Lacrosse Head Coach Shannon O’Neill, our village developed a
program that brings together Lacrosse communities throughout the Philadelphia area to
show appreciation for front line workers and to help community members in need
by creating re-usable Masks and Appreciation Kits for front line workers, Hygiene
Kits for homeless shelters, Meal Kits for local food cupboards. Detailed instructions
for creating Masks and Kits can be found on Instagram @lacrossevillage or at our
website pages, listed below. To date the Conestoga High School Village has donated over
300 masks and 1,000 kits to local hospitals, homeless shelters and food cupboards.
