Neighborhood rekindles food drive

Franklin Commons Neighborhood Association has again issued a food drive challenge for other neighborhoods associations in Clark County.

The drive will end during National Night Out on Tuesday Aug. 6, with the weigh in to take place at Center For Lay Ministries, 213 E. Maple St. between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Aug. 7. Normal business hours begin at 9 a.m., but a volunteer will be there early Aug. 7 for those who want to do a drop off food before work.

If your organization would prefer, money can be donated rather than nonperishables with every $4 collected equaling one pound of food. The winning association will receive a tree from Walnut Ridge Nursery to plant in their desired location. Last year, Franklin Commons won the challenge, collecting 392 pounds of food.

For more information about the Center for Lay Ministries, visit centerforlayministries.org or call 812-282-0063.

Yard sale to raise money

A yard sale, called “Purchase for a Purpose,” will be held at the home of Darian Eswine, 6317 Meadowview Drive, Georgetown, from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Aug. 10.

Every penny made will be directly donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Eswine lost a sister to cancer and she’s also involved in the Up ‘Til Dawn organization at her college, which benefits St. Jude as well.

Eswine and her friends will have for sale clothing, toys, stuffed animals, movies, books, trinkets, decorations, basically a large variety of other items. There also will be cookies and lemonade available and a donation bucket will be set out if people don’t want to buy, but would like to donate instead.

Email Eswine at darian.eswine@franklincollege.edu for more information.
