Vehicle donations sought for school damaged by fire

September 12, 2014
Officials of a Maywood high school are seeking donated vehicles for the automotive technology program after a fire destroyed the school’s science wing and all the existing vehicles for the program.
Proviso East High School was closed two days after the three-alarm fire on May 10.
"We have 360 young men and women enrolled in our automotive technology program but we have no vehicles to teach them with," said instructor Frank Bexes. "The school district is willing to pay to have them picked up and delivered to the school."
Bexes said Proviso Township High Schools District 209 would provide appropriate paperwork to satisfy any donations, although donations are subject to the approval of the district’s board of education.
Bexes can be reached at (847) 302-9313 and
