SMITHFIELD, Va. (WAVY) — Smithfield High School students were busy from mid to late-November hosting a canned goods drive for a food pantry in Isle of Wight.

Officials with the school say the participating students were with Smithfield’s National Honor Society. The drive was held from November 9 until November 24.

Classmates collected almost 400 cans for the Isle of Wight Christian Outreach Program, says Lynn Briggs, a spokeswoman for Isle of Wight County Schools.

The Isle of Wight Christian Outreach Program is a non-profit group run by volunteers who collect food, furniture, diapers and other items.

Volunteers also make a point to provide different avenues for emergency assistance, like emergency dental work, to those in need.
