Teaching the Autism Community Trades (TACT)

September 7, 2021 - TACT was vandalized on Labor Day 2021 at 4:50 a.m. One of their donated vehicles was set on fire in their parking lot, which destroyed that vehicle, the vehicle next to it, and part of their building, causing at least $5,000 in damage. As you may know, these donated vehicles are vital in helping TACT teach their automotive classes for students living with autism. Please watch the stories featured on CBS Denver and FOX31 KDVR.com and share to help lead to ANY clues on who is responsible for destroying these students' work. A GoFundMe fundraiser has also been setup to help TACT regain the tools lost during the fire. We appreciate your support!
