The Franklin Food Bank was a beneficiary of the success of this year’s Franklin Day festival.

And, according to Township Councilwoman Roz Sherman (D-Ward 2), there will be more to come.

Sherman, the creator of the yearly festival, presented a $2,500 check to food bank executive director Frank Hasner at the Dec. 13 Township Council meeting.

The money was part of the proceeds from the festival.

“Franklin Day is a lot of planing, a lot of hard work,” but it’s worth it when township organizations can be helped, she said.

“Thank you for all you do and I’m sure you’ll find many good uses for it,” she said to Hasner as she handed him the ceremonial check.

Hasner thanked the council and the community for the donation.

“We’re supported by our neighbors,” he said. “We couldn’t be doing it without you. So please continue to help your neighbors, folks still need help.”

“Franklin Day is a wonderful thing borne out of the mind of Roz Sherman and the food bank has changed many lives in town, and it’s great to see the two together, and it’s great to see Franklin Day helping,” said Mayor Phil Kramer.

Sherman said that other organizations will also feel the Franklin Day committee’s largess, but added that she wanted to get the food bank its check because of the need of the upcoming holiday season.
