The TPOA said they will match donations up to the first $1,000. The estimated cost of to repair or replace the items is $200,000, according to TPOA.

"We're trying to get some funds to this community as quickly as possible so their school year this year isn't interrupted as much," said Jobe Dickenson, a board member for the TPOA.

The Tucson Police Department arrested a 12-year-old, a 13-year-old, and a 15-year-old in connection to the case.
