- FLAG (Front Line Appreciation Group) of Somerset Please note that we are no longer accepting donations at this time. We will be ready to help fuel the Front Line again if necessary, but we all pray that this won’t be needed.

We are so incredibly appreciative of all our extremely generous supporters, and we are so proud to have accomplished so much on your behalf.
After June 1st, we will be reconciling our financials and will be making a donation to the Franklin Food Bank.* All of our donation results will be announced after the reconciliation has been completed.

We cannot thank you enough for all your support these past 2+ months. It has been an honor and a privilege to support our local restaurants and fuel the Front Line.
In the meantime, please enjoy what we hope to be our final week of our posts and pictures of deliveries to our amazing Front Line Warriors! Visit: http://flagofsomerset.org Also, see their flyer (attachment).
