Gladden Community House is a settlement house located in the heart of Franklinton. Since 1905, they have been an essential support system and engine for change in the West side, providing education and recreation programs, emergency assistance, advocacy, and support for individuals, families, and groups.


Join Besa and Gladden to support Franklinton Seniors. As a volunteer, you'll deliver nutritious food boxes to seniors, using your own vehicle. We'll meet outside of Gladden where you'll be provided with an overview and route delivery instructions. This volunteer event requires TWO (2) volunteers per car - please bring an older child, friend or partner with you.


Gladden will provide gloves and hand sanitizer. Limited interaction will take place during this volunteer event. Volunteers are required to bring their own mask or face covering, Gladden has a limited number. If you have your own gloves, face mask and/or hand sanitizer please feel free to bring it/use your own.
