FOCUS Detroit

Dec 7, 2015

Giving Tuesday is in two days. Please keep FOCUS in mind if you are looking to be a part of this national movement to GIVE on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving. You can donate here at this link.
Thank you to all who came out to support our November fundraising event. It was a great success. A special thank you to Fr. Joseph and the community of St. George Antiochian Orthodox Church who hosted it, and to kids from Commonwealth Community Development Academy, one of our school partners.
Thank you also to the teens and young adults from the Basilica of St. Mary and YES North America for serving with FOCUS at one of our partnering schools by reading to kids, organizing the school library and the FOCUS resource room. 
Recent requests from families through our school partners: a car seat for a newborn, towels and bed sheets, hats and gloves for elementary and secondary grades too! Contact us if you have any of these to donate or are conducting a drive for these items.
As we approach the end of this year and reflect back on all the children we have served in Detroit, we can't help but realize there are so many more children we can impact. But we need your support. Would you considering becoming a monthly donor of $20 a month? Just $20 a month helps feed 3 children every weekend of the year through our backpack feeding program. You can become a monthly donor here at this link.
For Those We Serve,
Eric Shanburn, Director
