On October 16th, Franklin Federated Church was very pleased to present our first check to Marcia Szymanski, President of New Hope, for $10,000 from the church's Restoration Campaign which pledged 10% of the amount received for New Hope. New Hope is a non-profit organization serving domestic and sexual violence survivors. Missions has been supporting this organization for almost 20 years. The money is designated for the RESPECT program. This is a 40-week state-certified educational program for perpetrators of domestic violence.
