FOCUS’ Tackle Poverty initiative began in 2009 with the support of Theodora Polamalu, FOCUS Advisory Board Member, and her husband Troy, an All-Pro Safety with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
By donating to Tackle Poverty, supporters make it possible for FOCUS to provide a “hand-up, not hand-out” to the homeless and working poor across America, through food and employment assistance, shelter, clothing, and healthcare.
“Our participation in this ministry is very personal, because Troy struggled in his youth with poverty,” Theodora said. “By God’s grace, Troy was able to overcome the circumstances he grew up in. However, not everyone is as fortunate as Troy.”
By joining with FOCUS and the Polamalus to Tackle Poverty, donors not only receive the satisfaction of knowing they’ve contributed to a worthy cause, they also receive a chance to win some fantastic prizes including signed jerseys, posters and more!
