CEO April Savarese said, “It’s frustrating, but it really hurts my heart to know that people are taking away, not just from kids, but from kids who need it the most”. “When we take away those tools we use to foster that growth and academic success, it impacts them greatly.”

The thieves also got away with the club’s PlayStation 3 game system. “It’s no secret we have had some financial challenges, especially this year with COVID and to know that we don’t have a lush reserve account to turn to, to replace everything. It saddens me that really who’s suffering … our kids,” said Savarese.

If anyone has information about the incident they can contact the Marion County Sheriff’s Office.
