Several West Chester businesses have teamed up to sell “I ‘heart’ West Chester” t-shirts and are donating all the proceeds to organizations that are helping at-risk people survive the coronavirus pandemic, writes Fran Maye for the Daily Local News.

Kildare’s Irish Pub, Padula Media, The Fence Authority, and Rubertis Custom Screen Printing took the heart that has been popping up in storefronts of local businesses and made it available to the public, all in an effort to support a worthy cause.

“The hearts show solidarity among the business owners and show that they will get through this together,” said West Chester Mayor Dianne Herrin.

Dane Gray, owner of Kildare’s, got the idea to sell t-shirts for $15 as a sign of solidarity.

“One hundred percent of all of the proceeds from the shirts will go towards feeding or providing supplies for those in need,” said Gray. “Each shirt purchased will provide a meal for someone who really needs it.”

Beneficiaries include the West Chester Senior Center and Safe Harbor, among others.

According to Thomas Padula, owner of Padula Media, hundreds of shirts have already been sold, and demand remains strong.
