Franklin Phone-A-Thon to raise money for pantry

Losing a day to the Blizzard of 2013 has not deterred the more than 30 volunteers for today’s Franklin Food Pantry Phone-A-Thon from endeavoring to beat last year’s fundraising total.

Those staffing the phones have a list of more than 3,000 residents to call. “There’s 15 phones, and we have three different shifts,” Lynch said, adding that Dean has graciously offered to feed the volunteers.
