FOCUS Detroit Expands

Dear Detroit Blog
Thanks to your prayers and support of FOCUS North America's center here in Detroit, over the past couple of months we have experienced tremendous growth. We are now helping kids succeed at 15 different elementary schools and organizations in the Metro Detroit area, providing 11 different programs and resources!
Our first bi-annual newsletter is printed and will be in churches and other locations starting next week. You can view or download a digital copy HERE.
We would like to officially announce our new kids summer feeding program. We are now an approved food sponsor for Michigan's Summer Food Service Program and will be partnering with the YMCA, St. Thomas Albanian Orthodox Church in Farmington Hills, and Entegra to feed about 100 kids at two camps this summer in Melvindale and Romulus. We will soon have an online sign up, but you can contact our office now to volunteer any day Monday through Friday from June 20th to September 2nd. We will prepare food from 8:30-10:30am at St. Thomas.  For those who are able, we will transport and eat with kids at two camps until about 12:45pm. We'll need about 3-5 volunteers to help every day, any age welcome. Join in!
We are in need of a standard sized fridge to help us with this program. Contact us if you have one sitting in your basement or garage that you'd like to donate!
We are still on gofundme with our crowdfunding campaign, raising support for purchasing food for our weekend food sacks for kids program. Please visit the site and share with others: www.gofundme.com/feeddetroitkids
Help us reach our 20/20 campaign of 20 monthly supporters donating $20 or more a month. We need 7 more! Sign-up HERE!
There are other ways to support us financially: through shopping at Meijer or Kroger. Link your cards to our organization number. Our Meijer number is #355098 and our Kroger number is #18419. If you have questions, visit customer service at the stores.
Books and Kids clothing for K-6th grade children are still needed. We will be collecting them through April. Contact us!
Blessed Lent to my Orthodox friends!

For Those We Serve,
