Food Pantry: Volunteers needed for Phone-a-thon

Franklin Food Pantry Volunteers,

On Saturday(s), February 9th and February 16th the Franklin Food Pantry will be holding its biggest fundraiser, The Annual Phone-A-Thon.

Last year, through the help of generous folks like you, we were able to raise over $12,500.00 to feed our Franklin neighbors in need.

This year, it is our goal to exceed that number by 20% to support the 40% increase in the number of clients seeking our assistance.

Will you join us?

Volunteers are asked to sign on for two-hour call shifts at Dean College:

February 9th       February 16th

Can we count you in?

Please call the Phone-A-Thon hotline @ (508) 528-3115 (option 5 on voicemail), or contact me via email

Please be sure to leave the following information
· First name, Last name
· Best phone number to reach you
· Email address
· Preference of day and shift/time(s)

Your response by January 26th would be appreciated.

As always, it is neighbors like you that keep us going!
