WCU Alumni Association's Eggcellent Idea Benefiting Oscar Lasko YMCA Family Food Bag Distribution

WEST CHESTER, PA — The West Chester University Alumni Association (WCUAA) recently found itself in the middle of a hard place and, well, 500 candy-filled eggs.

Each year the West Chester University Alumni Association organizes a fun-filled Rammy Easter Egg Hunt for the children of West Chester University Alumni. Anticipating numerous little ones for an egg hunt that features the University’s beloved and furry mascot, Rammy, the WCUAA prepared 500 plastic eggs filled with candies and stickers.

Following the way of many activities scheduled to take place across the nation these days, however, the egg hunt had to be cancelled due to the critical need to practice social distancing amid a global public health outbreak.

Now thanks to the fast and generous thinking of the WCUAA, families in the community will be treated to the filled eggs! The WCUAA donated and delivered the 500 egg treats to the Oscar Lasko YMCA, located at 1 East Chestnut Street in West Chester, today, April 7.

The Oscar Lasko YMCA will then add the eggs to the family bags that it is compiling and will be distributing soon to families in-need living in the Chester County area.

“Times today have been especially challenging for children and families all across the globe,” said Director of West Chester University Alumni Relations Jenna Birch. “The West Chester University Alumni Association wishes to let those in our community know that they are in our thoughts and that we are here for them. Our Ram family always has room for many more.”

In addition to the traditional Rammy Easter Egg Hunt, the West Chester University Alumni Association organizes a variety of engaging events throughout the year that welcome community members, as well as WCU alumni, including an Evening with Santa, Princess and Superhero Brunch, and more.
