Macon County CareNet has joined with the organizers of the Santa’s Gift Shop to conduct a food drive to help replenish the shelves of the CareNet Food Pantry. The food drive will be held at the annual Santa’s Gift Shop from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, Nov. 29 and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 30 at the Macon County Community Facilities Building on Hwy 441 S (Georgia
Road) in Franklin.
CareNet was founded in 1988 by a group of local people who attended different churches but wanted to come together to form an alliance between their churches and other groups who provided assistance to the community. Their goal was to better serve the community in times of crisis and to do so by working from one central location. Since then they have opened a thrift store, in 1997, to aid in the funding of their services and have created more than 10 programs to help the local community.
The staff and volunteers of CareNet do so much for their community, so MV Craft Shows wants to aid them in their cause by having a food drive at the annual Santa’s Gift Shop. Mark your calendars and go through your pantry’s and bring a non-perishable food item for a free admission into the Santa’s Gift Shop at the Macon County Community Facilities Building.
Not only will you help your community, but this will also give you the opportunity to get an early start on your Christmas season shopping.
