In the early morning hours of August 25, 2016, Peoples Autism Foundation lost our entire warehouse to a 3-alarm fire. Luckily, no one was in the building so there were no injuries. The fire burned for nearly 4 hours as the brave men and women of the Clark County Fire Department worked to contain the blaze. The fire engulfed our entire warehouse and destroyed everything. Including our clothing that was donated by the public, which we sell and use the proceeds to fund our programs. One of the biggest hits we took were the school supplies that were donated and those we purchased that were intended to be delivered to Clark County Schools. Despite this devastating loss, the Las Vegas Valley community, as always, stepped up and we were able to fulfill our promises!
What was left of our warehouse. You can see parts of The Cosmopolitan, City Center, The Martin and Panorama Towers.
These items were donated, and we sell the cloth to fund our programs. 18,000lbs of cloth destroyed
