ATTENTION:  We are looking looking for local businesses to conduct monthly food drives.  If you are interested please email Julie – Julie@franklincommunitycenter.org

Looking to donate your gently-used, in-season clothing but can’t make our donation day on Tuesdays?  On the first Saturday of each month, all Cudney’s locations in Saratoga and Wilton will feature bins where they will accept clothing on the first Saturday of each month from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.  So, if weekday drop-offs don’t work for you, mark your calendars for the first Saturday of the month, and FCC and Cudney’s will make sure your items get to our “free store” at 101 Washington Street, which is open to the public for “shopping” three days a week.  Keep it local!  Click here for a list of locations. 

Need assistance? Looking to give a donation or volunteer?
