The Franklin Food Elves are working with the Franklin Downtown Partnership in a “12 Days of Donating” campaign to benefit the Franklin Food Pantry. The group is aiming to collect 1,200 pounds of food by Wednesday; if it succeeds, 11 companies have pledged $200 cash donations. Contributions to the campaign last year totaled more than 2,000 pounds of goods and $4,000, allowing for 17,000 meals to be served to local families. For more information on the campaign, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 774-571-3109. For more information on the pantry and needed items, visit its website, www.franklinfoodpantry.org .
