FSA United Way and Franklin Cooperative Ministry hosted Business After Hours in October. Veronica Ferguson (center), Executive Director of FCM told about the food pantry, clothing closet, and financial help provided to people in Franklin/Southampton. Sallie Wood (far left), Administrative Assistant, shared her story. Sallie volunteered at FCM, then needed financial help when her husband lost his job. FCM provided some financial assistance and other resources to get them through this difficult time. Since then Sallie has been hired at FCM, her husband has a job and they have moved into a Habitat for Humanity House! Several United Way agencies helped Sallie get back on her feet - FCM, Foodbank of SE Virginia, Habitat for Humanity. She could not have done without them - and without our loyal donors. Thank you! Donate today to help others like Sallie have a good life!
P.S. Sallie and her husband still volunteer at FCM - Sallie helps at the clothes closet and George cuts grass.
