Eat for a cause

Come eat at the California Pizza Kitchen ANYTIME on NOVEMBER 1st to raise money for the South Franklin Community Center. Just click on the image to the right to print the flier or mention the "South Franklin Community Center Fundraiser" and 20% of what you spend will go toward the Community Center. 

The Community Center was started and is currently directed by members of the AmeriCorps VISTA program.  AmeriCorps is a federal program of full time volunteers committed to fighting poverty.  VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America) members dedicate a year of full-time service to help develop communities across the nation.

Some programs currently in place at the Community Center are: tutoring, English class, Institute, Family Home Evening, playgroups, 12-step addiction recovery class, health class, Spanish class, kids fitness class, piano class, dance class, and book club.  Also associated with the Community Center is the South Franklin Soccer Program – a free soccer league for kids ages five to fifteen.

These groups and classes are the results of community collaborations and are mainly comprised of volunteers and donations.  However, there are things that we can not provide for that require us to get funding other ways. With the community center growing and more people getting involved, our needs are also growing.  We therefore ask if you would be able to support us in our goal to raise money for the Community Center, so that we can continue to supply the center and its classes and programs with the necessary materials.   

We hope that you will consider this opportunity to serve our neighbors. Please spread the word and/ or bring friends with you when you go to California Pizza Kitchen on Monday.
