Helping Local Children With Need
In The Tri-County Region
To Whom It May Concern:
I would like to take a moment to tell you about a special memorial fund that wants to “give kids a little lift”. The Benjamin D. Osborn Memorial Fund, Inc. has been founded as a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization aimed to support youth with “NEED”. This fund was created in loving memory of CPL Osborn who was killed in Afghanistan, June 15, 2010, while serving in the United States Army during Operation Enduring Freedom. It is our mission and hope that the values being learned, such as discipline and pride, will be encouraged and passed on through Ben’s legacy. As he taught us through example and selfless sacrifice, we simply wish to do our part by “giving kids a little lift” in honor of Ben’s memory. As the man who planted the seeds within our hearts that inspired us to do so, we wish to carry on his legacy and make him proud.
The positive impact that Ben made in life continues in death through this fund. The fund is aimed at helping children in need, age 5 through 18. Modest assistance can be provided in the form of items such as: school supplies, tutoring services, winter clothing items, field trip admission expenses, electronics, musical instruments and classes, eyeglasses and more!
No monetary assistance is available except in the form of Senior Scholarships that are administered in June. Teachers, coaches, school nurses, guidance counselors, Athletic directors, and School Administrators may refer a child in need.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions regarding the referral process or the Ben Osborn Memorial Fund.
I look forward to the opportunity of “giving kids a little lift”.
William D. Osborn
