Oct. 27 | Olivia Gets Her Ride!

As far as special days go, Wednesday at Smith Elementary School was an all-timer. Thanks to the amazing community members of Team LuLu, Christmas came early for first grader Olivia Anders as she received a brand new, state-of-the-art power wheelchair! The Olivia Needs A Ride effort raised more than $40,000 for the new chair and continues to raise funds for a new van that will allow the Anders to transport the chair to and from school. The school held a celebration for Olivia on Wednesday where her classmates could cheer her on.
