Visit Franklin announced April 20 the start of a fundraising campaign in partnership with Franklin-based Twine Graphics to help support businesses in Williamson County that have been adversely affected by COVID-19-related closures.


According to a release from Visit Franklin, the organization plans to support local businesses through the sale of t-shirts made by Twine Graphics.

The blue t-shirt, with “In this Together” printed on the front, can be bought through Twine Graphics’ website for $22 until April 30, with 100% of sales proceeds to directly support local businesses and the tourism industry in Williamson County, according to the release.


“There are so many of our local businesses and hospitality partners that have been severely affected by COVID-19, and we want to do all we can to support them,” Visit Franklin President and CEO Ellie Westman Chin said in the release. “As an organization, we will be attracting visitors back to our community when the time is right as they bring a tremendous economic boost. In the meantime, we as a local community can rally around these friends and neighbors of ours and support their businesses by shopping from them online, getting a meal from their curbside pickup, or buying a t-shirt.”
