December 18 – Community Service Opportunity

Friends of Franklin Christmas Food deliveries will occur Sunday December 18th , starting at 10 AM.  As in the past, gifts will also be included for families with kids.  Please note that the location of the food pickup will be at the large red barn near 13 Mount St.  Franklin.

Please access Mount St. from Upper Union St. (not Summer St.) It’s a narrow road so this is important to help us queue cars, pack quickly and get you on your way.

Directions for those unfamiliar with this location

  • Take Upper Union St. (off King St)
  • Go past the Industrial Park (bearing left as you approach the Industrial Park entrance.
  • Go about 1.1 miles and take a left onto Mount St.
  • Continue .3 miles. You will come to a red barn on your right.  You will be directed from there.
  • Summer St. is the next left taking you back into town.

Please let Chris Baryluk at know if you can help so he will have a rough driver count.
