On Thursday evening, 19 May 2016 a group of our young people, together with some adults, again volunteered time to help pack a few hundred “weekend lunches” that will be distributed to hungry children in our Metro Detroit community.
After the work was done, FOCUS Detroit Director Eric Shanburn explained the ongoing work of FOCUS to those present. The boxes of food were then loaded into the van to be delivered to their destinations.
FOCUS Detroit (FOCUSDetroit.org) is the local chapter of the Fellowship of Orthodox Christians United to Serve (FOCUS North America), a non-profit organization founded by Orthodox Christians and joined by others to provide sustainable solutions to poverty in cities across North America. This regular activity of theirs takes place twice a month at various local churches and businesses.
Thank you to all of our students and parents who participated in what is becoming a regular activity at our church!
