Community Outreach

The Franklin Township Civic League is proud to offer the following community outreach resources.

Mary Meier Family Assistance Fund

The Mary Meier Family Assistance Fund is a separate not-for-profit organization operating under the supervision of the Franklin Township Civic League. Its purpose is to provide assistance to families during times of crisis or hardship.

The fund also coordinates a community Christmas drive every year, which helps to provide food, clothes, and toys for township residents. Generous donations from residents, businesses, schools, churches, and other organizations make this possible.

Willa Mae Wolfe Community Service Scholarship

This scholarship is awarded each year to a Franklin Township resident graduating from high school to assist with the costs of continuing education. The primary qualifying requirement for the scholarship is significant volunteer participation in the community. Interested applicants should complete the required documents and submit them to the Civic League.

Paul Bailey Community Heroes Award

This award was established in 2002 to recognize the extraordinary efforts of people from all walks of life in response to emergencies and disasters. It was named in honor of former Franklin Township fire chief Paul Bailey for his tireless and selfless efforts in emergency services during the U.S. recovery from the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.

Martha Bramlett Community Achievement Award

This award is given each year to a Franklin Township resident whose volunteer efforts have demonstrated an extraordinary commitment to the quality of life in our community. It was established in 1994 in honor of founding board member Martha Bramlett. This award is presented at the Civic League's annual meeting in May, and nominations for the award are solicited from the community.
