A Tempe school for special needs children is continuing it’s online fundraising campaign after a water main break caused extensive damage.
St. Dominic Savio Academy is a nonprofit school that offers a comprehensive program for children with autism that includes a consistent, year-long schedule. The June water main incident occurred on a Sunday when no one was in the building, so by the time the staff discovered the problem, flooding had wrecked much of the school’s specialized equipment and supplies. The flooding delayed the summer school session while the school worked to fix the thousands of dollars worth of damage.
A GoFundMe page was made to share the school’s story and encourage the community to donate to a school alleviate some of the financial strain. While St. Dominic found another building to temporarily move to, the fundraiser continues to fix the damage and replace the essential materials they need for a high-quality education, including sensory equipment for therapy and classroom furniture, sensory equipment used in therapy, our picture book library, and teacher office supplies. Check out their official GoFundMe page and learn more about St. Dominic’s efforts to help the community.
