The holiday season is a busy time already for food pantries, and recent statistics show that this year's demand will be even higher than usual.

Things you can do from here:

The Franklin Food Pantry has two fund raisers coming up this weekend where you can help.

Saturday, Nov 13 - Bigelow Station plays at the 3 Restaurant

Sunday, Nov 14 - Fund Raising at Legacy Place

How does the Legacy Place fund raiser work?
You buy a ticket for $10. This gets your name on the listing at Legacy Place. When you arrive on Sunday, Nov 14th. Check in to get a bracelet. You wear the bracelet during your shopping trip. The bracelet is an easy sign for the merchants to see that your part of the fund raising "Legacy of Giving" and you obtain the appropriate discount.

The $10 goes entirely to the Franklin Food Pantry. You gain by getting discounts on your purchases at participating vendors. A win-win!

Franklin, MA
