On behalf of the Smithfield Welfare Department and Food Pantry we would like to thank all the very generous town residents, schools, businesses and organizations who continue to support the pantry, and our programs.
During the summer months Fidelity Investments and Alexion Pharmaceuticals separately held successful food drives that assisted us with keeping the pantry well stocked. In August Fidelity Investments (see photo), along with some very generous town residents, assisted Smithfield Welfare by donating back packs for Smithfield’s school age children. Together we collected backpacks with lunch boxes, filled with school supplies, and stuffed with child friendly snacks for families in the greatest need. Fidelity Investments employees have continually displayed great generosity towards Smithfield Welfare and Food Pantry programs; by giving their time, and their efforts freely and abundantly. We are very grateful for the support we have received from the entire community including our anonymous donors! Thank You All!
In September Old Country Road School PTA held a successful fundraiser called Touch-A-Truck. The PTA donated the proceeds to Smithfield Welfare, and the canned goods to the town pantry. The Greenville Manor Association donated toiletries. The pantry recognizes all the time and effort that went into collecting and organizing all of these wonderful, and thoughtful events. Thank you all for thinking of the town pantry!
The Smithfield Welfare Department and Food Pantry provides food supplements throughout the year and heating assistance throughout the winter season. Our pantry is funded by donations and we could not do it without your generosity.
The Smithfield Welfare and Food Pantry is currently collecting new winter jackets, ski pants, and under garments for those in need this winter.
If you are interested in becoming a donor, or are in need of these services, please contact the office at 401-949-4590 x27 to see if you qualify. The office is located within the Smithfield Senior Center.
