When clothes get clean, students learn math, English, and other subjects at the Rainbow Coin Laundromat in Long Branch.
On July 22, Comptroller of Maryland Peter Franchot presented a proclamation and the “Comptroller’s Medallion” to Nok Kim, owner of Rainbow Coin Laundry, and Washington Adventist University business students for their efforts in helping students in the Long Branch area.
“These small businesses are the heart and soul of the Maryland’s economy and they’re struggling. Still a pretty poor economy right now,” Franchot said.
The community program called Rainbow Tutoring helped Kim and his business. The idea grew after Washington Adventist University students worked on creative solutions to help local business owners.
