NORTHAMPTON, Mass. (WWLP) – The district is receiving numerous inquiries from the community for donations after two disasters at Smith Vocational and Agricultural High School this week.

During Sunday night’s strong winds and thunderstorms, the school lost part of its roof causing debris and pieces of wood to hang off the side of the building. The building inspector shut the building down until the repairs are complete. The students were moved to temporary locations.

On Monday afternoon, a fire was put out in one of the agricultural buildings. The Department of Fire Services said the cause of the fire was accidental and likely started by a hot exhaust pipe of a lawnmower coming in contact with combustible material.

Monetary donations can be sent directly to the school at 80 Locust Street, Northampton, Ma 01060 made out to “Friends of the Farm,” and an online donation link will be available soon. Smith Vocational and Agricultural High School has also created a list of new items that can be donated as they start to rebuild.
