Donation Honors Richardson Legacy at Pottstown
HONORING MENTOR JEFF RICHARDSON – The STRIVE Initiative, a Pottstown Middle School student mentoring group headed by Pottstown alum David Charles, has received more than $17,000 as a donation to honor the late Jeff Richardson. A victim of pancreatic cancer, Richardson before his death was a mentor in STRIVE’s Created for Greatness program. His employer, Movement Mortgage, honored Richardson’s legacy with a $10,000 donation, and then also matched donations to STRIVE made by friends and family members. The total contribution, represented by a symbolic check, was presented during a recent ceremony at the school. Accepting the donation (at top) were Richardson’s son Ryan, his wife Doreen, and Charles. The event was attended (below) by Richardson’s family, volunteers, school administrators, and school board members.
