Below are examples of the charitable and community work of the Torrey Smith Foundation the last several years.
In partnership with Scholastic, and with the generosity of other corporations, the Torrey Smith Foundation has created several reading rooms in Baltimore schools. The program enhances literacy by providing over 1200 age-appropriate books to the children in these schools. The rooms provide a vibrant and comfortable place for students to read or borrow a book.
Back to School Fun Fest
Each summer the Torrey Smith Foundation partners with Walmart to host a “back to school event” to provide resources to students in low-income elementary schools. Teachers and students receive supplies to start the school year. In addition to the supply give away, students participate in fun activities including a STEM station.
The Torrey Smith Foundation helps families enjoy the holiday season by preparing and serving holiday meals and purchasing gifts for families. Some events include Torrey’s Turkey Day and Holiday Toy Drives.
L.E.V.E.L. Up Camp
This multi-sport camp had its pilot year at Torrey’s alma mater, Stafford High School and served 300 students ages 6-12. The children participated in several stations including football, basketball, soccer and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).
Tevin Jones Scholarship Fund
In honor of Torrey’s late brother, Tevin Jones, the Torrey Smith Foundation awards four annual college scholarships to high school seniors. Recipients of the scholarship are awarded $5,000, distributed over four years. Click here to learn more.
