About the Event
For several years running, Franklin has done a one-day food drive in conjunction with the Thanksgiving season, in acknowledgement of the giving back to our community this season celebrates.
We have always worked with the wonderful Centre Street Food Pantry, and this year they have let us know of specific needs they have for their Kids Club Food Drive. The Food Pantry has always appreciated how giving Franklin is, and this year with existing need and inequities even further amplified by COVID, we know we can do another great job of giving.
You can choose to fill a brown handle grocery bag (double bag please) with the following items, OR bring one or more items from the list to school and we will create the bags!
-1-2 boxes Mac and cheese
-1 jar peanut butter
-1 jar jelly
-1 box Granola bars
-6 or 8 mini juice boxes or milk
-4 small snack bags or 1 large snack bag
-Fruit snacks/pudding cups/ or cookies
-1-2 cans kid friendly soup or canned pasta
-1 pkg Fruit cups or applesauce cups
-1 box cereal or oatmeal Variety pack
**Optional: fun item such as stickers, crayons, activity books can also be included. Children are also welcome to write a card or decorate the brown bag.
The decorated turkey feather and the donated items should be brought to the front of school on Thursday November 19th (cohort B) or Monday November 23rd (cohort A) from 8:10-8:30. DLA families can drop-off either day.
Please consider donations that will directly help school age children in need. Email Jackie Savage-Borne at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions at all.
Thank you as always to the Franklin community!!
