Madera High thanks McCaffrey
McCaffrey Homes was recently honored by Madera High School students for donating $3,000 to their class, McCaffrey spokeswoman Diana Jackin said.
Jackin said the Madera High School Social Skills Autism class recently thanked the company with a large, handmade mosaic that represents its logo. The gift will be displayed at a new model home center under construction in Riverstone, a southeast Madera County master-planned community.
Lalo Sanchez, the class teacher, said the donation has supported the class by allowing students to rehabilitate an abandoned area on campus with a garden, fountain and seating areas. Sanchez said the mosaic included a puzzle piece design that represents autism awareness.
Autism is a developmental disorder that affects one in 68 children, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
