Thousands of dollars have poured in from Calgarians after the news yesterday that three tricycles were stolen from Providence School, a preschool for children with disabilities.
“Calgary is an amazing city,” said Christine Keogh, a resources development officer at the school. “The sympathy and support is overwhelming.”
The three tricycles were stolen on June 3 after someone broke into the school by climbing over a fence, according to police.
The trikes were designed for physiotherapy and motor-skills development.
Keogh said a roofing company who worked on the school stepped up and covered the cost of the tricycles.
Keogh said that any extra donations would go towards buying therapeutic and educational equipment for the school.
