Smithfield 5th graders of Mr. Gambill's class organized a fund-raiser to provide a loan to a small business person through KIVA. Kiva is an international nonprofit, founded in 2005 and based in San Francisco, with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty. We celebrate and support people looking to create a better future for themselves, their families and their communities. Smithfield students, with the help of staff, raised almost $200 to loan Ronalyn of the Philippines to purchase more pigs, feed, vitamins, and supplies for her business. The Smithfield donation was matched by a corporate donation.
