Over the weekend, one Miami school got a makeover.
Two-hundred and fifty five volunteers from Delta Air Lines built the playground that’s specifically made for children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. It includes games to strengthen motor, social, and sensory development.
The Hialeah Gardens school helps children and families with autism spectrum disorder and offers students a state-of-the-art education.
Attendees included Representative Manny Diaz; Jr. of District 103; Senator René García; managing director, Luciano Macagno of Latin America & Caribbean at Delta Air Line; Dorinda Lisbeth Coto, Angels Reach Academy principal, and Danny Sosa, socio-relational intervention supervisor at Angels Reach Foundation.
The playground “will benefit not only our students but to all children in the community who visit us, ” says Dorinda Luzardo, founder and director general of the Angels Reach Academy.
The airline also donated a $ 10,000 check to the school.
