SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) – The Pier Center for Autism received a very generous donation Friday night from the Siouxland Autism Support Group.
A $20,000 check was presented to the Center for its capital campaign to build a new center.
This donation brings the Center one step closer to meeting their $1.5 million goal, as they plan to break ground next year.
“We have numerous families on the waitlist so having to be able to get in and get services so being able to have the new building will be able to get people those services,” said Stephanie Robinson, Siouxland Autism Support Group.
The new center will allow the Pier Center to serve individuals of all ages with autism as well as provide mental health services and behavioral programs.
