Give a Week of Meals for a Child
Each year, more than 21 million children receive free or reduced price lunches during the school year. But, when school is out, many of these children go hungry. FOCUS’ Summer Feeding Program provides meals to children in need throughout the summer months. Your gift will keep a child healthy and hunger-free this summer.$50

Help ensure that everyone has the opportunity to experience YES by giving a scholarship to one young person.$150
Groceries for the Elderly
Our nation’s elderly are susceptible to homelessness and hunger due to low, fixed incomes. Many are incapable of leaving their homes in order to meet their basic needs. Your support will enable FOCUS to provide two weeks of groceries to an elderly person in need of support.$100
Feed the Multitudes
Each day, hundreds of individuals and families turn to FOCUS for a much needed meal. At St. Herman’s Orthodox House of Hospitality in Cleveland, Ohio alone, FOCUS provides 3 meals a day, 365 days a year.
