Franklin’s Future Leaders to Collect Gift Cards for Fire Victims

Franklin’s Future Leaders are collecting gift cards for Franklin’s Fire Victims. With 36 families affected, we felt that this would be a great community service. For those that would like to donate, please contact Cheryl Hobbs by emailing her at [email protected] These donations are being delivered to Dean Bank, as the Franklin Housing Authority with get these directly to families. To those that have donated, thank you. A huge Thank you to The Santa Foundation and Bellezza Day Spa for their support of Franklin’s Future Leaders (FFL) and their donations. Bellezza is offering discounts for services with a gift card donation to their business. We will continue to collect for as long as the need is there.

Franklin’s Future Leader

Is a group of children ages 4-10+ recognizing the importance of community! Children learn how we can help the community and how the community helps us. Through guest speakers and a variety of volunteer services, these children will have an upper hand in doing more community work as they get older. Season runs from August-end of April. This is a FREE Group and sponsored by The Dance Studio. Both Leader and Co-Leader are current Wrentham Lions, leader is a 2136 Elk and past Leader and co-leader of Pride and are CORI’ed. We are a not-for-profit organization.
We are, also, currently collecting new backpacks and supplies for our annual “Backpack for Kids” program and all are donated to The Franklin Food Pantry. Our goal is 100, last year we surpassed 70. Wednesday Wishes continue with a free Family meal on Sundays for those in need, with the help of Lasagna Love and a gift for a child in need for their birthday from FFL. Our Art exhibition continues with funds being provided, in the form of a gift cards, to both Fire Stations and Police Departments. We will collect needed items for The Franklin Food Pantry, as well as, NEW toys for Toys for Tots thru Franklins Police Department. We raised $600 for The Franklin Senior Center and will continue to help our community through fundraising events.
