The team has spent time this year giving back to their community in so many ways.
Every player on both the Panther Varsity and Junior Varsity participates in the full range of community service events the Franklin Booster Club organizes throughout the calendar year, and it goes year after year going back the many years beginning in 1980.
This year the pool is 46 players from both squads.
- building a wheelchair ramp –10 players helped on this, from setting up, working very closely with the awesome local charity Random Smile — https://www.randomsmile.org. “Wheelchair ramp building,10 players, 3 hours apiece.”
2. FHS Bottle & Can Drive and Franklin Food Pantry Drive are huge successes. ~~~. “the food drive collection, 20 players over the five hours at the Franklin Food Pantry, putting together 220 Thanksgiving meals for our families.”. Each pre-season, usually in September we have a “Bottles & Cans recycle collection effort” in our community. This year we added a request from community members to drop off items for our Franklin Food Pantry. We collected over 165 pounds of donated food. We hope this continues in the following years.
