Small Things Inc., a Warwick-based nonprofit formed in April 2020 to focus on community supported giving, has recently turned its attention to fighting local food insecurity.
“Small Things Inc. was formed for our neighbors, to raise and distribute funds to benefit our community – and now more than ever we have neighbors in need,” said Tracy Gregoire, Founder. “By offering our support to organizations in our area that fight hunger, we can make a difference one small thing at a time.”
Since August, Small Things Inc. has raised over $1000 for local food pantries, including the Warwick Ecumenical Food Pantry and Sacred Heart Church Parish Outreach Program in Monroe. The nonprofit also offers support to Warwick’s Backpack Snack Attack Program, which feeds close to 300 local schoolchildren. Small Things Inc. sponsored a child for the 2020 school year through Backpack’s “Angel” Program.
The nonprofit’s inaugural campaign, Truckloads of Gratitude, has gifted over 250 lunches plus 20 dozen cupcakes benefitting healthcare professionals and emergency responders. The meals and desserts are prepared and delivered by the nonprofit’s local family-owned-business campaign partners and are funded entirely through the generosity of donors. Small Things, Inc. remains committed to donating 5% of proceeds from its Truckloads of Gratitude campaign to Backpack Snack Attack.
Small Things Inc. is a tax-approved 501(c)(3) charity. To learn more, visit www.smallthingsinc.org, Facebook and Instagram.
