NORTH SMITHFIELD – The Town of North Smithfield will hold another “Community-Wide Yard Sale" to benefit the NS Food Pantry, on Saturday, May 18, 2013. This is the third year of this event but the first time a spring date is being added to the schedule.
According to Paulette Hamilton, Town Administrator, “residents can participate by holding an individual or multi-family yard sale at their homes, on May 18. When they register with Town Clerk, their location will be listed on the Town web site and in publicity, so that interested shoppers will have their location.”

Residents who want to take part must go to the Clerk’s office at the Town Annex at 575 Smithfield Road to obtain a yard sale permit for $5.00. Yard sale addresses will be listed for permits obtained before Noon on Friday, May 10, 2013.

Residents are encouraged to make a contribution to the town’s Food Pantry at the same time. “More and more families are struggling and need our help” Hamilton stated. Donations can be made to “NS Food Pantry” to purchase food for summer months when donations typically decrease. “This is a great way for people to get spring cleaning done, to have fun and to support others as well”. Last fall, there were over 30 yard sales held; the Town is hoping to increase that number this spring.

For more information, or to register your location, please contact Town Hall at 767-2200 ext. 301 or mhoward@nsmithfieldri.org.
