Music is good for the soul.  At Dorothy Spainhour Child Development Center, children and teachers are making new tunes on a fence --  a musical fence.  Thanks to the Lowe’s Heroes Program, volunteers from Lowe’s, a home improvement company, brightened up the lives of children with disabilities who attend the center.


Lowe’s volunteers donated fence panels, painted them, installed them and attached kitchen utensils to inspire musical creativity at the center.Other improvements include the installation of two new large sandboxes and fresh new sand for the children to explore and play in.


The Lowe’s Heroes Program was initiated in 2010 to encourage employees to have a positive impact in the community.Since then thousands of projects have been completed ranging from rebuilding a tornado-battered school to installing a garden for children.The program encourages employees in a location to team together, adopt a volunteer project with a local nonprofit organization or K–12 public school and make a difference.

Amanda Hurlburt, Director of the Dorothy Spainhour Child Development Center, says, “We are so grateful for the relationship that we have built with these amazing people!  Lowe’s has made a big impact on the children, teachers and families here.” 

Easterseals UCP works side-by-side with adults and children who are managing disabilities and mental health challenges. We serve as a nurse, a therapist, a social worker, a job counselor, a teacher, a psychologist, a caregiver and a compassionate friend all rolled into one. Our purpose is to help neighbors in need achieve better days and live their best possible life.
