The Franklin Food Pantry will be conducting it’s annual Phone-A-Thon on Saturday(s) February
9th and 16th from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. This is The Pantry’s largest fundraiser, last year raising
over $12,600 to support Franklin families in need. This year’s goal is to surpass last year’s
total by 20% to provide funding for the 40% increase in clients receiving assistance. Each
month, 600 households rely on The Pantry to supplement their food and household needs, 38%
of those served are children. Dean College has once again generously donated
the use of their facility for the call center. When volunteers call, local residents will see
“Dean College” appear on their caller ID’s. As always, donations of money, non-perishable
food, or household items are most welcome. Volunteers are still needed for the Phone-A-Thon,
for more information, call the Phone-A-Thon hotline @ (508) 528-3115 (Ext.5] or email,
