The Franklinton Board of Trade represents the businesses and citizens of Franklinton. The Board of Trade encourages people to be a part of the community through projects impacting their three pillars - Advocate, Beautify, and Connect.


Kaufman Development and the Franklinton Board of Trade is hosting a Litter Clean-Up Competition in celebration of Earth Week! The Franklinton Litter League is a competitive, team-style litter abatement initiative sponsored by the Board of Trade to keep the community beautiful and welcoming. When the environment is clean, safe, and appealing, people and businesses feel secure and thrive. 


Join Besa, Kaufman Development, and the Franklinton Board of Trade to celebrate Earth Day and beautify Franklinton! As a volunteer, you'll compete to pick-up litter in Franklinton. Volunteers will meet at the Gravity for an overview and we'll split into three teams - Team Kaufman, Team Gravity, Team Columbus. The team that collects the most trash will receive a vintage, upcycled trophy and other special prizes! All supplies will be provided. Increase your chances of winning and bring a friend to volunteer with you! After volunteer, join us at Gravity to relax and enjoy food from the local food truck, Ninja Bowl, which will be on-site until 3 pm. 


Volunteers are required to bring their own face masks and must be worn at all times. Social distancing will be observed. No client interaction will take place during this volunteer event.
