There are many special people who volunteer; who give of their time and energy to help others in their communities and Francisco (Frank) Gonzalez is one of those special people. The Brownstown Complex has the esteemed privledge of honoring one of its own for his efforts to help those in need.
Frank stared this work by selling smoked sausages, "red hots" and "Ball Park Franks" to support the Penrickton Center for the Blind Bowling Classic Charity event and the March of Dimes. After the closing of the Brownstown facility's cafeteria, Frank seized the opportunity to support this charity by hosting a lunch every Thursday. With a pan steamer and just two crock pots, Frank sold the "links" with all the trimmings.
Frank's charitable efforts also benefit the Capuchin Soup Kitchen in Detroit, Michigan. With "Frank's Food", he provides money on a regular basis. Frank chose Capuchin because he has personally experienced their services. When his brother-in-law became ill with cancer, the Capuchin services provided guidance.
Frank has received many accolades from his fellow employees and has been encouraged by them to continue. Frank's example inspires compassion and respect for humanity, and inspires all of us to think about what is really important-our fellow man
