SOUTH AMBOY — On Tuesday, Dec. 13, the Dowdell Library Foundation presented a check for $1,543 to the Sadie Pope Dowdell Public Library of South Amboy.
The grant was presented by Mary Rager and Mimi Pichey on behalf of the Dowdell Library Foundation to Elaine Gaber, director, and Catherine Charmello, president of the Board of Trustees, of the Library.
The Dowdell Library Foundation’s grant will be used to purchase an online software teaching center that will provide coaching for SAT, AP, GED, and citizenship tests as well as job search and workplace skills.
“We anticipate that the new Online Learning Center will help South Amboy students as well as many others in our community,” noted Mimi Pichey, president of the Dowdell Library Foundation. “We were able to make this grant thanks to the many people who contributed generously to our ‘Dunk a Politician’ booth at the South Amboy Street Fair and our ‘Dining to Donate’ events at local restaurants.”
The Dowdell Library Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. For more information, visit www.DowdellFoundation.org.
