This coming Saturday Kic-It is sponsoring a 5K walk/run to raise money for their wonderful program of helping homeless kids in the Franklin School District. Believe it or not, we have in this wonderfully affluent community kids who every day must find a place to sleep for the night. Hard to believe isn’t it? Franklin; homeless kids it just doesn’t compute! Back to the issue at hand, a good cause, a real need, and a special place to spend your dollars. I hope you sign up to sponsor someone. My boss, Linda, will appreciate more sponsors so sign up now! http://www.kic-it.org
This fund raiser for Kic-it, and other wonderful things put on here at the Franklin United Methodist Community that I’m sure would or should have been beneficial to the general public go unnoticed. Advertisement I know is expensive but events need more that a yard sign to be successful. There is a way to advertise not only locally here in Franklin but also for the central part of the state that is free. No one seems to know that every week, Thursdays in the Daily Journal and also in the Indy Star, there is a free advertisement page/pages that you can list events that benefit the public. It amazes me that organizations pass up this free service offered by the papers to inform the public of their events. I commend the papers for this public service. It’s just too bad that folks don’t understand the word free. Free is free is free!
Thanks for listening.
