The Franklin County-wide Firefighters Association combined with local Brookshire’s Food Store employees to collect donations of bottled water and Gatorade last Saturday.
Collections included 171 eight-packs of Gatorade, 110 cases of water, and $754 in cash, which will be used to purchase additional bottles as needed. Members of the Mount Vernon, North Franklin, South Franklin, and Purley volunteer fire departments manned the donation booth. The county-wide association hopes to do another such drive later this summer.
