Frankie's Voice was started first to aid in the search for Franklin Bonacci, who went missing after a party in July 2013. Growing to over 7,000 supporters on Facebook in a short period of time, the group lives on in memory of Bonacci, who was found after an intensive, social-media driven search spearheaded by the organization.
As stated in the group's official mission statement, the organization strives to help others and help others during their time of need - just as the Scranton-area community was there for Bonacci's friends and family in their time of need - holding multiple events to benefit the community in the process.
Now 14,000 members strong and playing a pivotal role in combating violence and aiding in the search for missing persons in Pennsylvania, the organization held a road race on July 19, 2015 to benefit Pennsylvania Trooper Alex Douglass, who was shot in the September 2014 ambush attack at the Pike County state police barracks that killed Corporal Bryon K. Dickson III.
