This was an exceptional summer! 35 scholarships were given to attend 2 weeks of full-day summer camp sponsored by Smithfield Recreation and Aquatic Center (SRAC) and Morgan's Gymnastics. Additionally, 2 scholarships were presented for tennis camp and 2 for Artzy Kids Camp both sponsored by Smithfield Parks and Recreation. A BIG shout out to Kristin Sasser and the SRAC/Smithfield Parks and Recreation staff and the staff of Morgan's Gymnastics for your support!
We also experienced a high interest from parents for private swimming lessons, this summer. 9 children were taught how to swim independently by the WONDERFUL staff at Johnston HealthQuest. Recipients were taught during five 30-minute lessons, once a week.
It's football season! Scholarships were given for 2 children to be a part of the Smithfield youth football team; one for flex football and one for JV football. We also granted a scholarship for cheer leading. Practice began in August and games will begin in September. GO RED DEVILS!
Well, that's a wrap for August. Thanks to our donors for making this possible. Donations are welcomed and may be made online on the Donate page or visit the Contact page for our mailing address. We thank you in advance for your support!
