Focus: HOPE Community Service

Please join our U-M Club of Detroit Community Service initiative by volunteering with Focus Hope. We will be packing food boxes for Seniors on Saturday, July 20, from 9am-12pm.

Focus: HOPE provides food to over 40,000 limited-income seniors in and around Detroit. Each month, every one of those seniors receives a box of food which contains healthy groupings of nonperishable foods. We rely on volunteers to pack the vast majority of this food, so both individuals and volunteer groups are always welcome!

Volunteers work together in groups of up to 25 per assembly line, cutting stock and then placing canned foods into Focus: HOPE boxes as they roll by. Volunteers may also unwrap and unbox pallets of food, collapse boxes for recycling and dispose of plastic waste. These tasks require moderate levels of activity, bending and lifting.

A full line of volunteers is usually able to pack over 500 boxes of food for our seniors!

If you have any questions, please contact Angelo Kontos at angelo.kontos@gmail.com
