Sheriff Mulverhill says “This week, as we celebrate Thanksgiving and give thanks for all of our blessings, it is a great time for us to reach out to the people of our state who have been hit so hard by the devastation of Hurricane Sandy, and share our blessings with them,”
Donations will be accepted at the Franklin County Jail between the hours of 8:00AM and 6:00PM starting tomorrow and ending on the 27th. Their list includes;
New, Inexpensive Towels
New, Inexpensive Blankets

For health reasons, donated items such as towels and blankets should be new. For logistical reasons, donations of used items, such as clothing and furniture, are not being collected at this time.
The sheriff’s office does not have the ability to accept monetary donations.
