'What These Students Accomplish is Vital'

Food Elves and FDP ‘12 Days of Donating’
Remember to drop off your donations at one of these participating local businesses.

The Franklin Food Elves is a charitable community service group made up of more than 90 hard-working middle school and high school students. For the past three years they have partnered with the Franklin Downtown Partnership and local businesses to create one of the Franklin Food Pantry’s most successful collection drives. Last year the “12 Days of Donating” campaign brought in more than $6,700 and 7,300 pounds of goods.
