National Day of Service & Remembrance
Franklin School Participated in
Operation Goody Bag’s
“COMMIT to COLOR”
In 2009, Congress designated September 11th as a National Day of Service and Remembrance, which offered a nation-wide challenge to engage volunteers in service activities on September 11.
Along with over 20,000 nation-wide group participants, Franklin School took part in this effort to support their commitment to engaging volunteers in a 9/11 anniversary project. Under the direction of Mrs. Kathie Williams, Student Council Adviser, the entire Franklin School family “Committed to Color” lunch bags with pictures and notes of appreciation. Over 1,000 bags were decorated and will be sent to “Operation Goody Bags” to be filled by volunteers with snacks. They will be delivered to first responders and troops in an effort to say “Thank you” and let them know that they are remembered and appreciated.
