Detroit, MI Nov. 29, 2018— Detroit News named FOCUS Detroit one of the top 15 charities in the city and launched a competition that will give one winner $20,000 towards their cause! YOU can make a difference in the lives of the children and families FOCUS Detroit serves by voting for FOCUS Detroit through the Cheer for Charity website.
Cheer for Charity is an annual fundraiser organized by Detroit News to support local, community focused non-profit organizations during the holiday season. FOCUS Detroit is honored to be among the 15 charities chosen this year.
Through our programs, FOCUS Detroit is empowering children experiencing poverty to have what they need to access opportunities, succeed, and live fruitful lives. By partnering with schools, churches and businesses, FOCUS Detroit ensures the children they serve have all they need to succeed in school.
FOCUS Detroit’s programs target three areas of need: childhood hunger and food insecurity, educational insufficiency, and lack of life essential resources. These needs are met through programs that include after school coding classes and literacy tutoring; year round weekend food sacks and summer feeding for kids; and life-essentials like hygiene kits and winter coats!
$20,000 would help us provide over 6,500 meals, 13,000 food pantry items, or 3,000 winter jackets for kids!
Now YOU can join FOCUS in making a difference in the lives of Detroit children and families by VOTING to help us win $20,000.
VOTE for FOCUS Detroit once per day per email address until December 7th. The five charities with the most votes will move on to round two in the competition!
