FIRST DONATION We got our first donation at Walmart for Stuff the Bus this morning from Evelyn Howell. She brought in 44 pencils in a takeout food bag and did not want her photo taken but said she wanted to help Franklin County students and thought she should do her part! HURRICANE HELPERS Thanks so much to the Louisburg College students and staff volunteers helping out during the Build-A Backpack Campaign. Drum Roll Please..... This year our Build-A-Backpack Program set a record with 1,058 bookbags! They are all filled with school supplies and ready to be distributed to the Franklin County Students in need. On hand as the last of the bookbags were stuffed are United Way Executive Director Kathy Harrelson, Amelia Peralta, Franklin County School board Chairman Gil Johnson and Pat Williams. Here are some more photos from the 2015 Build a Backpack program. View the discussion thread.
