FRANKLIN TOY PROJECT
Round up all the Elves!
Everyone is uniting to ensure the best holiday season for the children in Franklin County. We need volunteers to assist with our community fundraisers, we need generous folks to adopt families that need a little help to get through the season, and most importantly we need DONATIONS.
This program is meant as a supplement, but more often than not, these few items are all that a child may receive during the holidays.
A collaboration between area churches, businesses, volunteer fire departments, law enforcement, social service agencies and the Toys for Tots foundation, the program is coordinated by Franklin's Promise Coalition and all donations are tax deductible under the organization's 501C3 status.
Children ages birth through 16, living in Franklin County, who are in need are to be registered by your case worker or school guidance counselor. If your child is not of school age or enrolled in a child care program, he/she can be registered by a parent or legal guardian (if separated or divorced - by parent with custody).
Deadline to register is Friday, December 1st, 2017.
To register your family for the Franklin Toy Project, you or your family will need to be actively participating with Franklin's Promise or one of its partners (like Healthy Families, a Franklin County School, or CareerSource Gulf Coast). If so, see your Case Manager to register.
If you are not actively participating with a case manager or school counselor, you can go to the Franklin's Promise Coalition office (to register) at 192 Coach Wagoner Blvd. (formerly 14th Street) in Apalachicola (the Community Service Center, also known as the Old Apalachicola High School). To register, you will need:
PROOF OF FOOD STAMPS (in the form of): Application/letter from DCF or denial of service letter. These are used ONLY to prove that you are a Franklin County resident and to verify that the child lives with you.

Please bring all required documents with you when you come to register. If you DO NOT have the required documents, you will not be registered.
