Seniors Helping Smithfield Residents

Every year residents at the Greenville Manor hold a yard sale to benefit local charities. Proceeds from last year’s yard sale went to a scholarship fund at Smithfield High School, the Smithfield Welfare Office, St. Michael Church Food Closet, and St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry at St. Philip Church.

At the end of May, they will present their 34th and 35th financial grant to a college-bound Smithfield High School senior.

Dave thanked all of the residents for their continuing food donations and their financial support. He noted that their $500 donation would allow the Pantry to purchase 5,000 pounds of food from the Rhode Island Community Food Bank.
