The mission of the Andrew L. Hicks, Jr. Foundation is to share the love of Christ with Chester youth and connect two culturally different communities by engaging West Chester area teens to provide mentoring and enrichment opportunities that inspire at-risk Chester youth to be confident, hopeful and successful social entrepreneurs.
You might notice that our logo is the “WC” imitating the hand gesture used to represent Andrew’s home town of West Chester. Inside the curve of the “C” is a star with a cross inscribed, symbolizing the light of Christ that we hope to bring to the City of Chester and the youth we serve.
The picture above was taken just the day before Andrew fell. He was in San Francisco, CA on a family vacation. Alcatraz is in the background and Andrew was making the typical “WC” hand gesture, reminding us how much he loved his home town.
