Who We Are

Transforming the way in which we give back.

Transforming the way in which we give back: SMILE is committed to uplifting the forgotten and marginalized and connecting them to mobilize community members to work together in addressing various social maladies while providing social, economic and life enrichment. Our staff, volunteers and board members are committed to promoting altruism and self-sacrifice over egoism and personal accolade and continue to undertake all endeavors with a sense of honor, wonder, and beauty whilst providing high quality, accessible services to those in need without discrimination.
We are proud to do this work and proud to offer you this opportunity to partner with us, sponsor our efforts and further impact the local at-needs communities here in New Jersey.
As a grassroots organization acting as the first response team within New Jersey, SMILE and its work stand as a testament to why food pantries, diaper pantries and other programs that target fulfilling a family’s immediate needs are critical parts of the roadmap to building stronger, and healthier communities. If you’re looking to invest in an organization that is walking the talk, and innovating ways to increase its impact on a daily basis, look no further.

What We Believe.

SMILE is a non-profit organization that attempts to help the underprivileged members of our community. We work with everyone from Syrian refugees, to domestic violence victims, to widowed mothers and wives.

Our most prominent programs are our bi-monthly food pantry that offers access to healthy food for qualifying members out of our Passaic, NJ office. Additionally, our Zakat Inspired Fund offers one-time assistance to Muslim members of the community that are struggling to get on their feet. SMILE’s main mission is to spread the wealth and help our struggling community members at home. We’re in the business of spreading SMILES =)

Our Board Of Directors

SMILE is organized under a board of directors who oversee all operations and several advisory boards who oversee specific programs. Meet the many talented people at SMILE that make everything happen.
