SPRINGFIELD, Ore. -- The gifts keep pouring in for Bridgeway House, a non-profit school for autistic children in Lane County that fell victim to a burglary last week.

”I could see their frustration, and boy, I felt it. I knew it, and I thought, you know, we've just got to get on this,” said Jane Eyer McDonald with Eugene Hearing & Speech Foundation.

“We have been given back more than we lost, and in many ways, more than one,” said Bridgeway House executive director Patricia Wigney, “the heartfelt support from the community.”

McDonald on Wednesday presented a $25,000 check to the school.

Funds will help pay for new iPad software, technology upgrades and communication apps for students to use in class.
