Rainbow Center Receives $50,000 Award from the Jesse and Rose Loeb Foundation

Contributed by Rainbow Center

Haymarket, Virginia. Rainbow Center is pleased to announce receipt of an award from the Jesse & Rose Loeb Foundation in the amount of $50,000 towards the Build a Child’s Dream capital campaign to build an education building. The building will offer a space where people of all abilities can play together, enjoy inclusion activities and receive important physical, emotional, educational and behavioral therapeutic activities. The space will enable classes that augment therapeutic riding activities with sensory integration and stimulation activities while extending our service hours to provide essential respite for caregivers. The project requires $432,000 to complete.

As we celebrate this major gift from the Loeb Foundation, Rainbow Center is hosting their third annual benefit concert this month to raise additional funds for the project.
