Smithtown Elected Officials to Host a School Supplies Drive to Help Less Fortunate Students in the Area

The Smithtown Town Council, Town Clerk, Highway Superintendent and Receiver of Taxes will host a special back to school supply drive for disadvantaged children starting tomorrow. From Wednesday, August 22nd through Tuesday, September 4th residents and businesses can drop off extra school supplies at Town Hall, Smithtown Parks Department and Smithtown Highway Department buildings.


“Here in Smithtown… We look out for our own. Taking care of our children, especially those young budding minds about to start a new school year, is our priority. How many of us go out of control and overshop for our kids and grandkids? Rather than letting it go to waste, we can drop off brand new school supplies at one of our collection boxes.” - Supervisor Ed Wehrheim


Several Ways to Give:

Members of the community can deliver extra school supplies from binders and pens to backpacks and lunch boxes at one of three designated drop off locations; Smithtown Town Hall, the Parks Department or the Smithtown Department of Highways.

For savvy online shoppers beating the crowd this school year, residents can ship school supplies to Smithtown Town Hall to the attention of either the Town Clerk’s office or the Town Council.


Ship school supplies to:

Smithtown Town Hall

Attn: Town Clerk’s Office or Town Council’s Office

99 W. Main Street

Smithtown NY, 11787


School supplies will be collected and delivered to the Smithtown Children’s Foundation after the Labor Day Holiday Weekend.  


“We are already so fortunate to live here, so it’s nice to share in a way that helps a young mind grow. Our Youth Bureau has always done such a wonderful job at collecting school supplies and I know if we give them our support, we can set a new tradition.” - Councilwoman Lynne Nowick


The idea came about after Councilwoman Lynne Nowick asked if the Town Council could get involved with helping the Youth Bureau to collect school supplies for underprivileged in the community. The response from colleagues and many town employees was so well received that a school supply drive was created to facilitate the requests.
