Franklin Food Pantry Honors Volunteers
  

The Franklin Food Pantry is pleased to celebrate its 2019 and 2020 Point of Light volunteer award winners. This distinction is led by the AmeriCorps in partnership with Points of Light. Points of Light is the world's largest organization dedicated to volunteer service. Volunteers were honored at a small outdoor ceremony during Volunteer Appreciation month.

Point of Light volunteer awards recognize adult volunteers with at least 100 hours of service in the Bronze level and 250 hours of service in the Silver level. Due to the Covid-19 virus, The Pantry was unable to hold the ceremony in 2020 so is honoring both 2019 and 2020 this year.

“Our volunteers are critical to tackling food insecurity in the community. Some of their work is easy to describe weighing, carrying, packing, distributing, typing, calling, mailing, loading, unloading, delivering and more. But the real gold is in how each volunteer treat each of our neighbors with dignity, kindness, and compassion,” said Tina Powderly. “It can be incredibly stressful for those who find themselves seeking the services we provide, and the words and action of our volunteers show them that they are respected, give them hope, and empower them to tackle the challenges so many of our clients face. That is priceless and while it doesn’t ever go unnoticed, we formally show our gratitude to our volunteers during Volunteer Appreciation Week.”
