We are so thankful for Alicia Hughes, Director at American Express and Danilo(Danny) and Kathy Angelucci who own Anthony’s Cucina Fresca located in downtown Downingtown at 78 W Lancaster Avenue Downingtown, PA 19335. Danny and Kathy did not hesitate to help out and offer to discount meals for the seniors of DASC during these trying times. Alicia Hughes, who moved to Downing-town over six years ago from Ohio for a career promotion wanted to be able to give back to those greatly impacted by COVID-19. She got together with Anthony’s and donated the cost of the dis-counted meals for DASC low income seniors and they received a delicious spaghetti and meatball dinner delivered to their home by the staff at DASC and Bill Fagan, Board President. Also, The Chester County Food Bank delivered fresh produce for all seniors and the staff got to see everyone via a curb side pick up on Tuesday. Thank you Alicia, Danny, Kathy and the Food Bank for all you do. Everyone please stay safe, and be healthy. We are all in this together!
