Don and Barbara Smith have been instrumental in building a strong Roanoke community. They have long been involved in local charities, accounting for millions in charitable donations through their lifetimes.

Don has served on numerous boards and has always remained committed to preserving and enhancing the Roanoke Valley. In total, Don has served on more than 25 local, regional, and national boards, including Center in the Square, Roanoke Electric Steel Corporation, American Electric Power, Carilion Clinic, and the Foundation for Roanoke Valley. Through both his service on these boards and Don and Barbara’s own charitable giving, it is without a doubt that they have made a lasting impact.

In honor of their charitable pasts, Center in the Square’s brand new museum will be known as the Don and Barbara Smith’s Children’s Museum of Western Virginia, Kids Square. Please join us in honoring the impact that Don and Barbara Smith have had on the Roanoke Valley with the brand new Kids Square!
