The Lighthouse Project

The Smith Insurance Lighthouse Project is an employee run committee formed to oversee the community partnership and donation incentive in which Smith Insurance has been engaged for many years. Over two month intervals, the Lighthouse Project raises money by “Casual Friday” donations and half day-off raffles which is matched by the company, along with special events. Since the committee’s inception in 2011, The Lighthouse Project has presented over $40,000 in donations to local individuals and organizations in need.

 The Employees of Smith Insurance, through The Lighthouse Project, are committed to improving the community through a variety of fund raising initiatives.

 The Riverfront Children’s Center

 For the months of March and April, we will be collecting for The Riverfront Children’s Center, a local non-profit day care center with a mission to provide high-quality, affordable childcare and educational services while comprehensively nurturing the unique needs of children and their families.

 Riverfront accepts children aged twelve weeks through twelve years, including those with health or behavioral special needs. Beginning in 1983 as a preschool component of the YWCA, The Riverfront Children’s Center serves over 100 children a day and over 800 children since it’s inception. The center has been accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children since 1996, uses a curriculum based upon constructive, directed play, and offers a variety of family support services to help build strong, stable families. The Riverfront Children’s Center is Southeastern Connecticut’s largest provider of subsidized infant and toddler care.
