Canned soup, stews and other meats as well as packaged pasta and beans all urgently needed to help those struggling to put food on the table during the holidays.

There will be collection barrels in the front office lobby the entire time and Pack 97, the Cub Scouts troop at Franklin, will be manning collection tables each morning during the week of December 10th at both the front and Idaho gates, so it will be easy to make donations at drop-off.
