The Sprinkling Smiles Food Drive has garnered overwhelming support from the community. Students and civic organizations have joined hands to amplify the impact of the initiative. The campaign has also gained attention on social media, with residents sharing stories and spreading the word using the hashtag #SprinkleSmiles.
