SARATOGA SPRINGS — Franklin Community Center has received a $50,000 donation from Cathy and Elliott Masie to support the programs and services of the Center. 

“In the 18 years that The Masie Center has been located on the West Side, we have been continuously impressed with the service, spirit, communication and collaboration of Franklin Community Center, as it has served a wide range of the low-income individuals and families in Saratoga Springs.  Their food pantry, affordable housing units and Project LIFT are key resources for residents in our community,” said Cathy Masie.

The Center serves as a social service hub for the less fortunate neighbors in and around Saratoga.  The programs include, but are not limited to, a food pantry, a free after school prevention program for City School District children, affordable housing for low-income individuals, and assistance with furniture, clothing, household needs, school supplies and holiday assistance.  With continued support from the community, Franklin’s goal is to continue raising awareness of the social and economic problems faced by Saratoga area residents. 

The mission of Franklin Community Center is to work collaboratively with individuals and other agencies to provide services that will improve the quality of life and foster a sense of community and family for all people. “The partnership with the Masie’s truly emphasizes how neighbors can work together to make a difference in the community,” says Board of Directors member Zachary Manz. “We are honored to have them walking with us on our path to help others.”
