October Nonprofit of the Month

I'm very excited to announce that the Franklin Community Center is my October nonprofit of the month!

Franklin Community Center, a non-profit human service agency in Saratoga Springs, provides basic needs and services to less fortunate individuals and families in an effort to promote healthy lifestyles and positive changes.  The unique and comprehensive approach of Franklin Community Center fosters a sense of family for those in need, without the discomfort of bureaucratic paper work and prying questions. They offer guidance and advocacy, while providing a comfortable and friendly atmosphere. Their philosophy is to send people out the door with whatever they came in looking for.

The programs and services they offer include safe and affordable housing; a food pantry; free clothing and furniture distribution; advocacy and referral information; holiday assistance; teenage pregnant and parenting classes; and after school youth prevention program.  As a 501 (c)(3) private, nonprofit, they rely heavily on community donations and fundraisers to continue their efficient and effective services, which searve over 2,000 individuals each year.

I'm donating 20% of my October online sales to the Franklin Community Center.
