There will be a fundraiser for Brittany's Project this Saturday, November 13th in Franklin to raise money for the non-profit organization.

WHAT IS BRITTANY'S PROJECT?

Brittany's Project is a facility that has been erected in Franklin, Louisiana on donated property. The organization provides recreation, educational workshops, calendar-based respite services, summer camps, social interaction and other measures of support to individuals with disabilities.

The facility is named after Brittany Saucier, who was diagnosed with Down Syndrome. Brittany's parents Bruce and Sandra Saucier have donated the land to erect the facility, which will be available to all individuals throughout Louisiana and beyond to experience life without limitations.
