Torrey Smith Holds School Supply Drive After Fire Destroys Hometown School

Posted Jan 22, 2014

The supply drive will take place Thursday from 6-8 p.m. in Fredericksburg, Va.


After a fire destroyed a school building in his hometown earlier this month, Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith wanted to do what he could to help.

With the aid of his foundation, Smith organized a school supply drive at the Walmart in Fredericksburg, Va.

Smith will be at the event Thursday, from 6-8 p.m., at 125 Washington Square Plaza.

The building that was destroyed on Jan. 5 was the old high school in Colonial Beach, and it was most recently used to store supplies for the elementary school next door.  Colonial Beach Elementary, which Smith attended, was not destroyed but many of the supplies for the school were lost in the fire.

The current students and teachers at Colonial Beach Elementary also had to relocate classes to Oak Grove Baptist Church after the fire.

“280 kids and teaches need our help!” Smith wrote on Instagram. “We are already off to a great start with the help of my foundation.”

As part of Thursday’s event, Walmart has bundled packages ranging from $5-20 that customers can purchase and donate to the school.

Smith has been active on social media encouraging people to support the supply drive.

“They need our help!” he wrote.  “Come out and help support our community.”
