Red collection bins for the Franklin Food Elves

60+ civic minded middle and high school students in Franklin, MA have formed the Franklin Food Elves in a campaign to help the Franklin Food Pantry.  The Elves have designated December 1 – 12 as the “12 Days of Donating” for the Pantry.  The group is collecting canned and non-perishable food items at the Holiday Stroll.  Please bring your food donations to the Stroll and drop them off at the red collection bins to help this very worthy cause.
