Community Outreach

FRANKLIN FRIENDS

A Project of Flohr's Lutheran Church, UCC Cashtown-McKnightstown Charge & Orrtanna United Methodist Church

Franklin Friends is a community service provided to the families in the Cashtown/McKnightstown community. It is our goal to ensure that children who are in food insecure homes have healthy food options for the weekends. In this way, when they return to school, their bellies are full and their minds are ready for learning.We have partnered with Franklin Township Elementary to provide these eligible students a backpack of food at the end of the week. They take this food home and, on Monday, they return the backpack for their next installment of food.

Volunteers teams of 4-6 people are needed to pack the bags each week. The bags will be packed at the end of the week at Flohr's Lutheran Church and then will be delivered to Franklin Township Elementary of Fridays.

Donations of food and/or money are greatly needed to keep this outreach going.
