Polly Rogers, a Sophomore at UNC Charlotte, tragically passed away in May 2018. She was young, beautiful, and full of life. Polly was a member of Zeta Tau Alpha Sorority at UNC Charlotte and was studying special education in the Cato College of Education. She was warm and very caring to all who had the pleasure of knowing her.
Polly's family and friends, along with the UNC Charlotte community, are coming together to honor Polly's memory with a sensory garden which will be located in the Botanical Gardens at UNC Charlotte.
The Polly Rogers Sensory Garden, designed with children in mind, will engage and stimulate all the senses through plantings and interactive elements. It is a safe, therapeutic environment for kids with Autism and other disabilities, and is the perfect way to honor Polly who wanted to be a Special Ed teacher.
The funds raised through this crowdfunding project will cover the capital construction of the project and any supplementary funds will the help purchase additional materials and amenities for this space.
Please make a gift today to support this special initiative to honor Polly Rogers and help carry on her dream to create a therapeutic environment for children.
