COVID CARES Kit Distribution

.

Oil City – Franklin’s most recent service project is their COVID cares kits that were put together for school aged children across Venango County at the start of the fall 2020 school year.    The club constructed 1000 kits that contained 1 water bottle; 1 bottle of hand sanitizer; 1 package of Kleenex; 1 package of hand wipes; 1 mask; and 1 thermometer (depending upon available supplies).  Grant money was received through the County of Venango and a local charitable organization to offset the cost of the supplies included in the kit. The club was happy with the outpouring of community support and donations as well.
