This past week has been busy as we updated our process for assessing needs and collecting donations. This new collaboration with the SAFE Coalition will help insure that we collect items that will be used in a timely manner by those who need them. All donations are being brought to the Franklin United Methodist Church to be sorted, stored, and then distributed. If you'd like to help sort, you can signup here. If you are part of a group/organization that would like to help sort, please email me to schedule a time to help.
The After-School Program is slated to begin next week! Thank you to all who have volunteered and gone through the necessary vetting. If you'd like to learn more about this program and volunteer to help, please reach out to Rev. Kathy McAdams.
The Franklin Interfaith Council has setup a new designated fund for "Local Humanitarian Aid." 100% of these funds will be used for local humanitarian efforts in the Franklin-area. In the near-term, these funds will be used to help meet the needs of the families placed in the Emergency Shelter. Donations can be made online here (designate the fund as "Local Humanitarian Aid Fund)."
