Week ending - Feb 12, 2012

Neighbors helping neighbors.

Whether it is helping to spread the word about the upcoming vote for the new high school, or parents spending time with their children’s sports teams as coaches, or fund raising, when folks get involved to help one another, good things happen.

The next two Saturday’s will see dozens of volunteers making hundreds of phone calls for the Franklin Food Pantry. The all volunteer effort is the second annual phonathon for the Food Pantry.

The “all volunteer” fundraising effort is key. The Pantry depends upon our volunteers to collect food, money and help deliver services to our Franklin neighbors. Your dollar contribution gets multiplied when leveraged by our network of resources. The Greater Boston Food Bank, BJ Warehouse, Panera, Stop & Shop and many others all join in this effort to put food on the table.

Dean College allows the Food Pantry to use their bank of phones. If you do have caller ID, the volunteer phone calls will appear as “Dean College.”

If you will be away from Franklin for school vacation, you can make a contribution through the Food Pantry website or via the link on Franklin Matters. Either way, the money gets directly to the Food Pantry.

You can also mail a check to the Food Pantry. The address is PO Box 116, Franklin, MA 02038-0116

Or drop a check off during the day when the Food Pantry is open. Tuesday to Friday from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM.

Will you help your neighbor by making a contribution?

Note: There are two paid employees of the Food Pantry; Executive Director, Anne Marie Bellavance and Operations Manager, Linda Sottle.

Note: I am on the Board of Directors for the Franklin Food Pantry. It is one good way for me to help give back to this community because I do believe that Franklin matters!
