The place that helps people in need, now needs some help of its own. Focus: HOPE urgently needs volunteers to assist with their Food for Seniors program.

They rely almost completely on volunteers to assemble food packages for low-income seniors and to deliver food to homebound older adults in Wayne, Oakland, Macomb, and Washtenaw counties. CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP.

Since the pandemic began, they’ve had more than 4,000 people sign up to receive food, and at the same time, their volunteer base has decreased dramatically due to health concerns and schedule changes.

In partnership with federal and state agencies, Focus: HOPE provides more than 42,000 seniors with monthly food packages to help meet basic needs. They also provide opportunities to obtain health screenings, income support, tax preparation and utility assistance. Please click here for more information.
