There were 20 players and they had to get sponsors and donations for their walk. They received 5 community service hours for their time and service.
The cause is for the St. Vincent De Paul which is an organization that raises money for those in need. It is associated with St Mary’s Church here in Franklin and they are the ones who organize the walk for St. Vincent De Paul.
We chose this organization because we like how it directly impacts people from Franklin. Sometimes you do community service and you never know where the funds go or how they are used. The organizers shared with us that they already have requests from Franklin residents asking for help. They receive help with food, shelter, basic necessities, clothing etc.
