Franklin’s Promise Coalition spreads Christmas cheers


At a luncheon held yesterday Franklin’s Promise Coalition did their part in spreading Christmas Holiday cheers in the large conference room inside the Mayor Van W. Johnson, Sr., Recreation & Community Service Complex.


The Coalition served over 100 plates rounded off with turkey, ham, dressing, and seafood gumbo with all the other traditional trimmings and assorted soft drinks, tea and desserts.


Partaking in the festive meal were seniors from the Holy Family Senior Citizen Center, volunteers from the Franklin County Food Pantry and staff from the various offices located inside the Johnson Complex.


Afterwards staff from the Coalition along with volunteers from the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office and the Franklin County Emergency Management Office got busy sorting Christmas gifts for distribution from the Toys for Tots Program to families throughout the Franklin County community.
