Last Saturday, Venture Local Franklin held its 10th Cash Mob. With growing momentum, 45 mobsters met at the clock tower early Saturday morning before descending on Franklin's Farmer's Market.
Mobsters has three goals in mind, commit to spending $20 to provide a quick economic boost for the local vendors; meet three new people, a tremendous networking opportunity; and lastly, have fun!
As part of being selected for the site of the cash mob, Franklin Farmer's market vendors committed to "pay it forward" by donating left over homegrown goods to CareNet.
With the commitment of the members of the Franklin Farmer's Market and canned foods donated by mobsters, an estimated 250 pounds of food were collected for CareNet.
The next Cash Mob will be held at Mossy Rock on Main Street.
