Restaurants, car dealerships and residents in and outside of Franklin have been dipping into their wallets over the past two weeks to support five Franklin teens.

Community members and businesses throughout Johnson County wanted to find a way to help the families of Jason Moran, Michael Chadbourne, Sarah McLevish, and to support Mark Nally and Trent Crabb.

By Monday, the community had raised more than $35,000 for the five teens and their families, and the fundraisers still aren’t finished.
