About

We are looking for groups large and small that can volunteer any week day (Monday-Friday) to help us pre-pack boxes for our homebound senior program.

Start the new year out helping someone else! Gather your family, colleagues, and friends to help out another.

We need assistance with building the food boxes, filling them, and sorting the stock.

Information about the program:

The Commodity Supplemental Food Program , established in 1971, assists mothers, children up to age 6, and low income senior citizens age 60 and older. In 40 years, Focus: HOPE has been instrumental in providing canned and packaged food for 21 million people who struggle to survive on meager incomes. There are 3 opportunities to volunteer in this area.

Central Warehouse can accommodate 1-30 people. The hours are Monday-Friday 9am-3:30pm, closed the first Friday of every month and Sundays. Volunteers that participate will be "cutting stock", that is Focus: Hope lingo for opening boxes and putting food on pallets for pre-packs (boxes of food).
