Good Neighbor Program:  We encourage vendors and shoppers to donate fresh produce and goods from the market to the Community Food Bank of Franklin County.  Donations will be gathered and delivered to the food bank after market close at each of our monthly Second Saturdays on the Square events.

Non-Profit Outreach Program:  We love to support local non-profit organizations through our market!  One featured organization is invited to set up a booth during each of our monthly Second Saturdays on the Square events to promote awareness and accept donations for their cause.

The mission of the Guardians of the Children (GOC) is to recognize and react to child abuse and educate the public to do the same; to serve as advocates to provide strength and stability to families in crisis; and be an answer to the prayer of an abused child or teen for courage, support and protection.  "Don't Let Your Silence Drown Out Their Cries"  We are a newly chartered chapter of GOC, covering 10 counties, centrally located and meet in Mount Vernon.

Our mission is to preserve our natural and cultural heritage by striving for 4 primary goals: 1) further historical preservation , 2) promote heritage tourism, 3) maintain four historical museums that are free to the public, and 4) promote the participation of local youth in historical activities. Our organization depends entirely on donations from our members and visitors to the museums.
