The Franklin Knights of Columbus - Council 1847 held their Sixth Annual Holiday Food Card Drive to benefit St Vincent de Paul. This year’s Drive was unique in that it was conducted virtually/online. The Covid 19 pandemic has created unprecedented challenge for St Mary’s Parish and the Franklin Community in their efforts to raise the desperately needed funds to help feed people in need. Because of the Parish and Community support and generosity, the Franklin Knights of Columbus have been able to surpass our previous year’s fund raising goals through online donations. Working with St. Vincent de Paul, the money raised will benefit people in our community that are in danger of going hungry. During these unprecedented times, the Parish and the Community has once again magnificently stepped up to ensure that this year’s Holiday Food Card Drive has been a great success. The Knights of Columbus in close partnership with the Parish, Community and St Vincent de Paul are happy to say that in a small way we have tried to alleviate food insecurity in our community. The Franklin Knights of Columbus extend our sincere Thanks!
