Franklinton National Honor Society helps furry friends
The latest service project that the Franklinton High School’s National Honor Society members participated in was collecting pet food and accessories to be donated to the Marks Animal Rescue located in Mt. Hermon.
This privately operated animal rescue is an example of people selflessly giving back to the community and the surrounding areas. Marks Animal Rescue currently houses 57 rescue dogs and several other various animals in need.
