Bi-Lo of Franklin is currently in the middle of its annual five-week charity drive. Each year a different community organization is selected for the drive. This year the managers are raising money for CareNet. The goal for this year is $5,000.
Vanessa Bailey, director of CareNet, said that she is overwhelmingly grateful to the people of Bi-Lo for all of their hard work with this charity drive. “This comes at a very good time, especially with the economy the way it is,” she said. “We are a faith-based organization meeting the needs of the community, so we are not countyfunded. It is a constant struggle. Without the community there would be no CareNet.”
