Make-A-Wish Connecticut is estimating more than $250,000 in damage following flooding at its Trumbull location.
Staff discovered the flooding Sunday when preparing for an event at the nonprofit's Wishing Place.
They say a nearby building had a sewage issue that forced over 200 gallons of water out through their toilets.
About 30 volunteers showed up Tuesday to help staff clean and begin the plan for repairs.
"The good news is no one was injured. We will rebuild, though we are going to need a lot of funds to do that, so anyone out there who'd like to help -- ct.wish.org," said Pam Keough, president and CEO of Make-A-Wish Connecticut.
The Make-A-Wish president estimates the building will be closed for a couple months but will still move forward in granting wishes.
