Towne Connections

TC Banner

The Towne Connections program seeks to support Franklin Towne Charter High School’s commitment to provide a family-like atmosphere by way of financial and emotional support to members of our local community who are in need. The goal is to develop and grow funds which are made available to struggling members of the FTCHS community. This community includes students, alumni, staff and family members. Many of our members face economic struggles which have been intensified by job loss, the passing of a family member, or chronic health concerns. Towne Connections funds are available to alleviate the struggle concerning food, medical treatment, funeral expenses, and necessities. Additionally, funds may be used in a wish capacity, seeking to enhance the Towne community and our members' educational experience. As the holiday season approaches, we are welcoming letters or emails from our Towne families who are facing tough times and would be grateful for a food basket or help with necessities during the holiday season.

If your family, or a Towne family you know of, would benefit from the assistance of Towne Connections, please email [email protected] with your request.  If you are writing for another Towne family, please include the recipient’s name, phone number or address and a brief statement as to how we can help.  We do accept letters for families in need throughout the year.

Letters requesting our help or contributions can be dropped off to the front office, mailed to the school c/o Towne Connections, Franklin Towne Charter High School, 5301 Tacony Street, Box 310, Philadelphia, PA 19137.
