J. O’Donnell Memorial Fund
L ate in December, 2003 we received the tragic news that one of our clients, Charles J. O’Donnell, died suddenly. Charles came to our Center for assistance in learning to compensate for his learning disabilities while attending college. Dr. Cooper assisted Charles in learning studying techniques and understanding how he thinks and learns. Charles was so excited about the techniques that he was learning that he wanted to share the information with others. He began volunteering at the county juvenile detention center, teaching young men the techniques he had just learned. Because his family found Dr. Cooper’s help so beneficial, they have established a Charles J. O’Donnell Memorial Fund at the Center to provide resources so others may benefit as Charles did. With the generous donation from the O’Donnell family, the Center hopes to expand the number of assessments and educational services we offer to individuals throughout the five-county Philadelphia Metropolitan area; those who cannot afford these services will receive them free through the fund.
The O’Donnell family has
agreed to open the fund to donation from anyone who believes, as they do, that
the services offered by Dr Cooper and the staff at the Center should be
available to as many people as possible. The
O’Donnell Family invites you to contribute to Charles’ Memorial fund.
If you would like to help others receive the specialized services offered
at the Center you can make a contribution to the memorial fund.
The hope is to build a fund that will provide enough income from interest
that it will sustain services for many students for years to come.
You can make a contribution to the fund. Make checks payable to: The Center For Alternative Learning
and write Charles J. O’Donnell Memorial Fund on the memo line.
Mail your donation to 6 E. Eagle Rd. Havertown, PA 19083.
