At Eastport Avenue Elementary in Uhrichsville, we find a familiar face for those who support The Rainbow Connection.
Now 11 years old and in the third grade, Emily Page is doing well at Eastport where Rainbow Connection's help has grown as she has. Helping her do better each year.
We've seen how The Rainbow Connection has helped those who work with Emily Page to make her school day as normal as possible. Along with their praises of The Rainbow Connection efforts, Emily herself knows how much The Rainbow Connection helps her from day to day.
Helping equip Tuscarawas County schools to aid in educating and working with handicapped students is another big area of help from The Rainbow Connection.
Dover South Elementary is one such location, that benefits from The Rainbow Connection's help.
Three year old student Jake Loibl has cerebral palsy and is helped through The Rainbow Connection's purchases from chairs to aids and toys. The Rainbow Connection has also purchased a changing table for the school, and they've also provided a special swing.
The Rainbow Connection's efforts delivered for South School and as a result, life and education go a bit better from day to day. Jake Lobil's parents, teachers and fellow students all are appreciative of The Rainbow connection's efforts.
