The men’s group of the First Presbyterian Church (FPC) in Franklin recently sponsored a successful fundraiser for the Veterans Restoration Quarters (VRQ) in Asheville.
The church congregation raised money through a combination of lunches, fundraising events and Sunday collections. The church also collected donations from the public at Franklin’s Taste Of Scotland festival held on Father’s Day weekend. The VRQ contributed invaluable assistance by providing substantial promotional support.
The church’s fundraising goal was $2,000 but were able to collect over $3,000. The church rejoices in its success by helping these deserving veterans who have fallen on hard times.
