Banneker takes part in ‘Holiday Cheer’ event

NORTH SMITHFIELD – Banneker Industries Inc. sent a team of volunteers to the 15th Annual Operation Holiday Cheer event.

Held in Warwick, contributions are collected from across the state and dozens of volunteers, including Banneker Industries employees, assembled more than 500 care packages for shipment to Rhode Island service men and women who will be spending the holidays away from home.

Team Banneker volunteers also did something special this year by taking the time to write a post card with a personal message to include as part of the care packages to R.I. service members.
