Smuttynose Be KIND Initiative
The Be KIND initiative is aimed at giving back to the community by supporting local non-profit organizations throughout the year.
Each month Smuttynose will partner with an organization to support their efforts through various sponsorships, donations, awareness, activism, and community service. We invite you to join us in these efforts during on-campus events and encourage you to donate, volunteer, and spread kindness this year.
