ONONDAGA COUNTY, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — The rain held off for a groundbreaking ceremony for a special addition to Casey’s Place, a center that provides respite for children with severe developmental disabilities.
Construction on the Jim and Juli Boeheim Foundation Wing is in full effect at Casey’s Place, which is just off Lafayette Road in Syracuse.
The wing will have five bedrooms, bathrooms, and a rec room.
The center has been giving short-term, out of home respite services for children and their caregivers in their time of need for the past 15 years.
“It represents love and support and unconditional love and supports a wonderful day. People got behind this from the beginning and its one of the most well-supported projects we’ve worked on in Syracuse, so it’s a great great idea,” the Boeheims said.
The Jim and Juli Boeheim Foundation wing is set to open sometime this summer.
