Signs of hope go up in time of crisis

A simple gesture of kindness can go a long way. 

Messages of hope appeared at South Grenville District High School and St. Lawrence Academy in Prescott earlier this week. The signs offer words of encouragement in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, along with recognition of front line workers, food bank volunteers and other groups going above and beyond during the crisis.  

Leslie Bottigoni, the mastermind behind the signs, says she just felt the need to do something. She noted she kept hearing great stories about people helping out, but they were drowned out by all the negativity on social media. 

Bottigoni, owner of LUXE Boutiques and LeMar LUXE Spa Studio, says it’s a tough time for local businesses. She noted it’s hard to keep up with bills when there’s no money coming in and it’s important to just take it day by day.

Bottigoni explained the response has been overwhelmingly positive and she will keep making signs for as long as awesome stories continue to roll in. She says the purpose is to shine a light on the good during this dark time. 

Bottigoni got the supplies to make the signs from her dad, Lloyd, and her husband helped hang them up. 

“I just really want to thank the true hero’s out there that are continuing to work and give me something to post about,” she noted.
