So That No

Franklin County Child

Goes Hungry

Each year in May for more than a decade, The Frankfort Rotary has conducted a food drive to support our local Franklin County Emergency food Pantry.

The Covid-19 pandemic has created an unprecedented crisis in food insecurity for families and our area's children as parents lose their livelihoods and cannot adequately and reliably provide a healthy diet for their children.

This year for the first time, the Youth Fund is taking an active role. While our primary purpose is to provide scholarships to area students to attend college or technical school, our larger commitment is to support our area youth. In that respect, even as we have had to cancel our most important scholarship fundraiser, the Youth Fund has pledged to once again provide $17,000 in scholarships to area youth this year.

We urge our fellow Rotarians and everyone in our community to donate as much as they can to help assure that our Franklin County youth do not go hungry.
