Smithfield Human Services & Food Pantry Gives Thanks

Smithfield Human Services & Food Pantry Gives Thanks: On behalf of Smithfield Human Services & Food Pantry, we would like to thank all the very generous Smithfield schools that have worked continuously through the fall and winter months supporting the pantry by holding can goods, and cereal drives. There has been an absolutely overwhelming flood of generosity throughout the town schools and it is very impressive. To all the staff, and all the students at William Winsor Elementary, Anna M. McCabe Elementary, Old County Road Elementary, Raymond C. LaPerche Elementary, Smithfield High School’s National Honor Society, and most of all Vincent J. Gallagher Middle School’s National Junior Honor Society (NJHS ) students, who not only held a canned food drive, but organized a winter coat drive. Human Services collaborated with NJHS, and led the research to maximize the greatest use of the winter coats, the School at St. James in Lincoln was chosen as the recipient.

Thank you all so very much for your dedication and hard work towards community service. You have made a tremendous impact on your community and beyond. Keep up the great work, it is contagious! Thank you very much to all of you!

The pantry is run off of donations from the community, and the continued outpouring of support we have received from the town schools goes above and beyond.

The Smithfield Human Services & Food Pantry provides food supplements throughout the year, and heating assistance to income eligible residents throughout the winter season. We run a back to school program, a holiday program, and also advocate for any local issue that is related to a basic human need. Our pantry runs on donations from the community, and we could not do it without your support.
