We’ve officially crossed the halfway point in our commitment to 40 Acts of Kindness and have more energy than ever to keep the good deeds rolling!
Celebrating 40 years has never felt better. With a desire to pay it forward and make a positive impact in our community, thus far Smith Design has donated items and volunteered at food pantries and animal shelters, mentored students in package design, planted and cleaned up in local parks, created signs for our disabled community, delivered personal care products to those in need, and more.
Volunteering and supporting these causes has made the team more aware of the needs of the community and has motivated us to find even more ways to help. Here are the causes the Smith Design team supported in May:
At the heart of the National Association of Letter Carriers is community service. We were excited to support their Stamp Out Hunger® Food Drive, designed to support food banks in the spring, which is when they tend to run out of donations received during the winter holiday season. We collected food for the drive and donated to the cause.
Hearts of Gold, an organization based in New York, works to create positive, sustainable changes in the lives of homeless mothers and their children. In May, Laraine Smith attended a fashion show fundraiser in the city to support this incredible cause and made a monetary donation on behalf of the Smith Design team.
You may be familiar with Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, a non-profit focused on raising money for pediatric cancer. Smith Design hosted a Kick-It event on Bring Your Kids To Work Day, where kids (and adults, too!) played a game of kick ball and expressed themselves creatively. Employees made donations, and Smith Design matched each one for the cause.
