This year the Franklin Food Elves “12 Days of Donating” Campaign marks 15 years of helping neighbors in need during the holiday season and beyond. Starting on December 1 and running through December 12, the neighborhood collection by local middle and high school student serves as the largest fundraiser for The Franklin Food Pantry. Be on the lookout in your neighborhood for purple envelopes to support your local Food Elf.
The annual Franklin Turkey Trot will still happen in 2020! The fun 5K will occur with a few changes to keep all of our runners safe and provide help to the Franklin Food Pantry neighbors. While the turkey trot will still officially run on Thanksgiving morning, November 26th, each runner can run or walk your own personal 5K when it is most convenient for you and can map out your favorite course anywhere throughout town.
On August 4, we will be moving our food distribution to the Rockland Trust parking lot (on the other side of our building.)
We are so excited to announce that the Party for the Pantry is BACK ON! The virtual event will take place on Thursday, July 16 from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm.
