As part of JPL’s ongoing commitment to the community, JPL summer interns partnered with Vickie’s Angel Foundation to create new short-form content to help the organization tell its story. Vickie’s Angel Foundation is a local non-profit that provides a temporary financial bridge to families and individuals fighting cancer.
Interns Ashley Reeb (Elizabethtown College), Patrice Lonardi (Wilkes University) and Weston Brantner (Johns Hopkins University) worked with Vickie’s Angel Foundation staff and JPL team members to create four short videos. The interns interviewed three local people fighting cancer who have been helped by the Foundation. The videos will be posted on Vickie’s Angel Foundation social media pages and its website to spread the word about the positive impact donations can have on the lives of those affected by cancer.
“JPL has once again proven their commitment to improving the quality of lives for local families affected by cancer by allowing their talented interns, for the second year in a row, to focus on a project for Vickie’s Angel Foundation,” said Christine Rapp, Vickie’s Angel Foundation development director. “The resulting videos featuring families helped by the organization, not only raise awareness, but also serve as a strong testament to potential donors allowing us to continue to serve more families facing their own financial crisis.”
Vickie’s Angel Foundation is all about the families we help and the stories of their journeys. JPL has embraced our mission and taken our foundation to a new level,” said Vickie’s Angel Foundation Founder Mickey Minnich.
