"November 28 is #GivingTuesday. Following the retail events of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, this national day of giving is a chance to give back to those in need. It is a chance to give hope to those who are struggling to have enough to eat. Having enough food gives hope to our clients that they will not be too hungry to focus on all the things that matter.
Like getting homework done after school. Having the energy to job hunt. Being able to afford heat. Making friends.
Every bag of groceries our clients bring home is full of hope. More than 1,000 people, including nearly 300 children, count on the Pantry during the year to help make ends meet.
We hope to raise enough funds to fill 1,000 bags of groceries. You can give the gift of hope now with our #GivingTuesday online donation form.
Thank you for helping our neighbors, your community. They are counting on us.The online form to donate to the Franklin Food Pantry for #Giving Tuesday can be found here
