Spreading Holiday Cheer to Senior Resources of Guilford

senior resources guilford ctyDuring December, the time of year for giving back to our community, the Senior Resources of Guilford hosted a Jingle Bell Ball event for caregivers.

Debra Stokes, Program Coordinator, sent us this response after the event:

“The Jingle Bell Ball for Grandparent/Kinship Caregivers was a huge success thanks to all of the donations from the community. The caregivers loved the pork shoulder so I am putting you on notice for December 2014. I can’t begin to tell you how well the barbeque went over I was so pleased that they loved it so much.

We call it the Jingle Bell Ball because we focus on families that do not get to go to the ball and celebrate like other families; the children really had a great time, this event made life so much easier just for a moment for the caregivers in our support group. We served 200 children and their caregivers at this event. We provided lunch for everyone, gifts for the caregivers and toys for the children. Santa was there and a host of other activities for the day.

Again thanks for your support of Senior Resources of Guilford and the kinship caregivers that are in our program.”

Supporting the Red Cross’ Blood Drive with a Tasty Treat

Red Cross Blood Drive Sponsored by SCNBOn January 7th, the local Red Cross chapter held a blood drive at the Highway Patrol and Emergency Management (NCNG). Smithfield’s Chicken ‘N Bar-B-Q supported the event by providing lunch to the donors.  Our Morrisville NC location was honored to work with the staff at the local Red Cross chapter.

“Thank you so much for your support and generous donation. Everyone was thrilled to have such a treat,” said Dallas Ellington, Red Cross Representative.

It was a successful event with 50 donors and 41 units of blood collected.  Did you know that one pint of blood saves three lives?

Giving blood that impacts lives of those in need is a powerful way to support your community.

We are grateful to serve.

“Help Our Holiday” Blood Drive

Blood DonorWith the holiday season comes the exchange of gifts among families and friends. In less time than it takes to wrap a few holiday presents, bake a batch of Christmas cookies or sing a few carols, you can give the gift of life…blood… and save lives. The blood supply often drops during the hustle and bustle of the season but the need remains constant. The blood supply proves to be challenging; in constant need of replenishment. On any given day, blood transfusions are needed for accident victims, patients in surgery, organ transplants and patients receiving treatment for leukemia, cancer or other diseases. Unfortunately, the need for blood never takes a holiday.

Rex Blood Services is hosting their annual “Help Our Holiday” blood drive today (Friday Dec 20th) from 8:30-4:30 at the Rex Blood Services Donor Center, 2709 Blue Ridge Road Raleigh. Stop by and give blood. Help us save lives through blood donation.

Smithfield’s Chicken ‘N Bar-B-Q is adding our own incentive to encourage giving today. Take a “selfie” photo of you at Rex Blood Services, email to us at contest@scnbnc.com with your name and address. We will send you a t-shirt and a $10 gift card, so include your t-shirt size and color.

Donors are our heroes and through your help, we ALL can have a hand in passing on this lifesaving gift that many patients so desperately need. There is no substitute for human blood. Thank you

Partnering with Me Fine Foundation to Serve Community

Thanksgiving is a time of friends and family gathering together to give thanks for all the many blessings in our lives. Thanksgiving is steeped in traditions such as the sharing of a special meal. There are some of us who are thankful for our family, our health, and our jobs. Not every family is giving thanks to good health or to a good job today. Danielle loxtonThe Holidays are also a time for those of us who can give to help others in need. Individuals and businesses are grateful to be able to give back to our community. At Smithfield’s Chicken ‘N Bar-B-Q we are giving back to a family in need today by providing a full dinner for eight. Joey Powell, executive director of Me Fine Foundation asked if we could support a particular family for Thanksgiving. Our Smithfield North Carolina location will deliver a special Thanksgiving dinner with all the sides. As we each sit down to dinner today, remember those who aren’t as fortunate on this day of giving thanks. The mission of Me Fine Foundation is to voluntarily provide necessary resources and financial assistance to parents and caregivers with children being treated at Duke and UNC Children’s Hospitals regardless of race, diagnosis, religious affiliation or economic status. Me Fine was founded in order to pool resources for families facing life changing challenges. No one can change what these children are forced to endure medically, but our combined efforts can certainly change the financial burdens of their caregivers and make their countless days in the hospital a little easier to endure. Although the Foundation has grown significantly over the past few years, Me Fine continues to be operated by the initial members and has made a significant difference for many families enduring the same hardships and struggles. If you would like to help the Me Fine Foundation during the holidays, please contact Joey Powell, jpowell@mefinefoundation.org, 919-202-0086. l_me-fine-logo

Grateful to Serve Those Who Have Served – Our Veterans

Grateful to Serve Our Veterans

Grateful to Serve Our Veterans

What brought motorcycle riders, bagpipers, senators, Miss North Carolina, golfers, and Smithfield’s together? More than 280 people tee’ed-off during the 5th annual Tee-Off for the Troops Golf Classic on Tuesday, November 11, 2014 at the Bentwinds Country Club in Fuquay-Varina, NC. Held in recognition of Veterans Day, the golf classic strives to recognize and honor veterans, and to raise funds that enable Military Missions in Action (MMIA) to complete its projects and programs that support veterans with disabilities as well as active-duty veterans. It does this more successfully every year. Grateful to support this cause, the Morrisville, NC location of Smithfield's Chicken ‘N Bar-B-Q®/SCNB Chicken ‘N Bar-B-Q® donated 180 lunches for this captain’s choice event that is so much more than a golf tournament. Tournament play opened each day with a meaningful ceremony. The two-day event included senatorial keynote speakers, the Legion Motorcycle Riders, pageant queens, and a local TV weather personality. During an emotional Fallen Soldier Ceremony on day two, a U.S. Army Color Guard and Rifle Team posted the colors and gave a 21 gun salute. The event is growing through the desire of MMIA, its volunteers, sponsors, and participants to assist disabled veterans. Next year may just be bigger, so don’t miss out. If you’re interested, check out the event page for 2014: 2014 Tee-Off for the Troops Golf Tournament. Additional pictures and information from this year’s event can be found on Facebook.

Supporting our newest community, Greensboro North Carolina

IMAG1244 Recently Smithfield's Chicken 'N Bar-B-Q was asked to provide lunch to a firefighter's meeting in Greensboro. We are grateful to serve and show our support to volunteers in our newest location's community.

On behalf of the firefighters and myself, I would like to express our sincere appreciation for the donation of Smithfield's food for the firefighter's monthly business meeting. It was a welcome change from having to prepare the meal themselves and in usual Smithfield's fashion, it was all delicious! Thank you again for your generosity!
Sincerely, Steve Allred Fire Chief
