FRANKLIN COUNTY – The annual Gerry Wiles Holiday Food Basket drive underway, with the Franklin County Chamber of Commerce now collecting monetary and non-perishable food item donations.

Community members can apply through the Chamber website by visiting www.franklincountymaine.org or by picking up an application at the Chamber office in Walmart.
Requests for baskets must be submitted to the Chamber by Dec. 2. A committee will review the applications and contact those selected to receive a basket by phone. Baskets will be available for pickup on Friday, Dec. 9 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Chamber office at 615 Wilton Road. For more information call 207-778-4215 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
