The Aspen Camp School for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing has received more than $10,000 in donations and priceless amounts of public support after word got out that some of its facilities were vandalized during the X Games.
The nonprofit Aspen Camp also is in talks with Airbnb to recover costs for the damages.
“We’ve been overwhelmed, in a good way, with the calls, emails and social media messages of community members locally and far away (with) their support,” said Katie Murch, marketing and strategic director for the nonprofit organization. “This will definitely help us repair the damages, add security measures and support at least three summer campers’ scholarships.”
The camp suffered damage to two of its four cabins on Snowmass Creek Road and its commercial kitchen was vandalized last weekend. The kitchen is off limits and locked, but an unknown person or persons gained access through a service window and raided the pantry.
Someone also scrawled, “We are not deaf” on a sign taped to a refrigerator.
