Franklin Food Pantry: Wow!

Franklin Food Pantry: Wow!  

 Thank you!

Dear Friends,
"Wow" is the word that comes to mind when I look back at the last few weeks of our busiest time of year. I am touched by a community that has such tremendous capacity to think of, and do for, others.

The spirit of giving throughout the season was embraced by all ages. Davis Thayer students once again embarked on their trek through town to deliver goods to the Pantry. In the month of November alone, community groups held 30 food and fund drives bringing in 10,000 pounds of food! The Franklin Food Elves Campaign was the most successful drive in its 12-year history, giving us the means to purchase fresh food to supplement the product donations. The Franklin Turkey Trot broke all records with nearly 1,000 people coming out to support the Pantry. 

On the receiving end of this generosity are 1,000 individuals, including nearly 300 children, who will be less hungry because of your gifts. They will have enough nutritious food to enjoy the holidays without the distraction of hunger. They will have access to food and personal care essentials throughout the winter because of your support in recent weeks.

This week, when we finished our ham dinner distribution to more than 200 families, I felt a huge sense of pride in being part of such a giving community. A group of supporters, donors and volunteers, who made it possible for our clients to enjoy the comfort of a holiday meal with their loved ones. A compassionate community that continues to help us fight hunger.

I cannot thank all of you enough. May you have an especially wonderful holiday season full of as much joy as you have brought to so many others.
