Franklin St. giving back all year long

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

The Franklin Street Events Association is giving back all year long.

Members are calling it the 12 months of giving.

In January, the businesses along West Franklin Street are donating to the Tr-State Food Bank.

Businesses including the Gerst Haus are taking canned good and non-perishables to donate to the Food Bank all this month.

It all began with the December Give-back, to adopt less-fortunate families during the holidays.

"This year we decided at one of our meetings, why don't we do this just in December," said Cindy Reitz. "Let's just do it all year long. I know one of our favorite things to do is to help the humane society and the animals in the shelter, so in August, the Gerst Haus is doing their 'Dog Days of Summer' where we're going to do things for the vanderburgh humane society."

Each month a different business along Franklin Street will donate to a different organization.
