A Message From Smithfield Freezin' For a Reason

On Saturday, January 1st, we have committed to starting 2022 off right by taking the Plunge for the athletes of the Rhode Island Special Olympics by taking a chilly dip in alongside many other warm-hearted people. We know – you’re probably getting cold just thinking about it! But the cold that we will feel is temporary…the positive impact this will have on the lives of thousands of athletes will last a lifetime.
