Avery is a bright and sensitive three year old who attends educational programs at Orlando Science Center. His parents feel his love of science comes from his beloved Pop Pop, Roger Pickar, who passed away a year ago. Avery shares his grandfather’s boundless curiosity and desire to solve problems.
Avery might not know the word “philanthropy,” but he certainly knows what it means to help others. For his Christmas gift last year, his grandmother Gloria gave him $1,000 to donate to charity in his grandfather’s memory. It was her way of helping Avery honor his Pop Pop while also teaching him an important life lesson. Avery could choose any nonprofit to support, and he decided to become the Science Center’s youngest donor.
His gift has made an impact by helping children less fortunate have the same learning experiences that he has enjoyed at OSC. Avery wanted to share what he has learned with other children and also celebrate his grandfather’s value for education and community support.
Orlando Science Center is grateful for the generosity of Avery and his family. Sometimes, the best gifts in life are the lessons learned and shared with others.
