We are partnering with psychiatrists and educators to recognize and treat anxiety and depression in teens.


The Psychiatric Department of Temple University Health System under the direction of Dr. William Dubin, Chair, Psychiatry and Behavioral Science is making presentations to high school faculties, students and parents.

Topics include Anxiety. Depression. Substance abuse. Social bullying. The TUH doctors involved have a depth of experience and knowledge that create a basis for recognizing and understanding these mental health issues.


Michael ’03 and Ronald Donatucci ’01 belong to the Prep family. The administration led by Father John Swoop is making every effort to understand the emotional roller coaster that teens today ride on a minute by minute basis.

The Prep is a natural platform from which to launch Michael’s Giving Hand. We’re in there every day with our kids. We’re family.


Michael’s dad, Ronald, serves as President of the Board of City Trusts which oversees Girard College. When Michael was a young boy he and his brother, Ronnie, would sometimes visit the school with their father. Girard College is a special place for the Donatucci family.

Founded in 1848, Girard College is a full-scholarship boarding school, grades 1-12, for qualifying families of limited financial resources.
