WHO WE ARE:
My name is Adam Franklin and I am the third generation President of Franklin Sports. We are a family-owned and operated sporting goods business founded in 1946. We currently employ over 200 amazing people across the US and overseas. You may recognize us from watching your favorite MLB player wearing our batting gloves, playing with our street hockey products in the driveway, enjoying one of our many outdoor games with family in the park or backyard or learning how to “play” with one of our many different inflated sport balls.
Since the outbreak of Covid-19, our #FranklinFamily team has worked hard to determine how we can make a difference.
We are very fortunate to be able to partner with one of our trusted factories overseas to produce large quantities of FDA approved, Level 1 ASTM Disposable Face Masks. Our goal is to manufacture, ship via airfreight and then distribute 1 million masks in the next 2 weeks to the front-line workers who need them most.
Franklin Sports will MATCH every dollar raised up to $250,000 in order to get to our goal of 1 Million Masks! This amount plus every dollar that is raised over and above will be used 100% in our efforts to manufacture more masks.
We plan to share the progress of our mission from the manufacturing of the masks, to the logistics of airfreight to our warehouse and then finally the distribution to the frontline workers that need these the most.
Together, we can make a difference and save lives. Please help us reach our goal.
Thanks in advance for your help!
