The Franklin Chamber of Commerce recently held a ribbon cutting for The Filling Station Thrift Store located at 615 Highlands Road. Store hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The Filling Station of Franklin is a 501(c)3 non-profit purposed to support the mission of Kids Against Hunger-Franklin: Feeding families around the corner and around the world. The Filling Station operates in support of that mission selling clothes, shoes, household items and more.
All profits are channeled to Kids Against Hunger. Financial gifts are accepted to help meet their goals more quickly. All gifts are tax-deductible.
Kids Against Hunger-Franklin packages tasty, highly nutritious, low cost meals that are easy to ship, store and prepare. When sufficient funds are gathered to purchase the ingredients for a packaging event, the event is scheduled, volunteers are recruited and ingredients are gathered for the high energy, large volume event. In just a few hours, thousands of meals are packaged and boxed ready to deliver to those who distribute directly to those in need.
