In memory of Steve Smith and the Naked’s former baritone sax player, Thomas J. Schwartz, RNJ has donated money and musical instruments to the Woonsocket Middle School were TJ taught math for over fourteen years. The donations are awarded in the name of the student who excels in math and music at the Middle School.

Rock N Jock also donates money to the schools repair fund to help maintain any instrument that needs repair. This years wish list for Woonsocket Middle School is a set of Chimes.
