Welcome Suzanne Davis to Board of Directors

The Board of Directors of the Franklin Area Survival Center is happy to announce that Suzanne Davis is joining our board. Suzanne, and her husband John, own McCarthy Funeral Homes in Greenfield and Turners Falls. They have lived her for many years and Suzanne is well known in the area for donating her time to good causes. She has served on the board at Shea Theater as well as the United Way. Suzanne has an administrative background and will surely be a wonderful addition to our board!

Once again accepting clothing and linen donations

We were able to get through the backup of clothing and linens and will be accepting donations of clothes and linens along with household items. Please remember you can call and make arrangements for our site supervisor to come out and pick up large items. They must be in sellable condition, which means no rips, tears, or broken parts. Our site supervisor has the right to refuse items if they do not meet our standards. We generally tell people, if you wouldn't buy it then we probably do not want it for our store. We do have limited space, so you may be asked to wait a week or two for pick up. Our telephone number is 863-9549.  Check out our website: for more information.

Temporarily Not Accepting Clothes/Linens

We are temporarily not able to take clothes or linens at this time. Please call before coming until further notice. We are sorry for the inconvenience, but we are at our max limit at this time in the sorting room and only have one person who is sorting. I will announce on here when we reopen taking clothes and linens.

We also recommend that you call ahead when thinking of donating any household items and/or furniture, space is maxed out.

Thank you!
