FOCUS Orange County
8:15 am - 10:30 am
A big "THANK YOU!" to all who served the last two Saturdays - March 14 & 21. We packed over 5,300 food boxes. If it wasn't for your help thousands of seniors would not have recieved much needed food. May God continue to bless your hands and your hearts!
OC Food Bank …Still Needs Volunteers!!!
Many senior citizens in Orange County rely on the free boxes of food they receive from the Orange County Food Bank. Over 25,000 boxes of food are prepared monthly by volunteers. Given the threat of the corona virus, over 520 volunteers canceled in just two days. Hearing this news from Andre Gaithe at the Food Bank, FOCUS Orange County served with Andre the last two Saturdays at the Food Bank. With 90 faithful volunteers working over the past two Saturdays, they worked non-stop and packed over 5,300 boxes of food.
Andre Gaithe at the Food Bank asked if we could send him more able bodies to pack boxes of food. I am therefore asking those who can from our FOCUS family to serve at the Orange County Food Bank on Saturday, March 28 at from 8:15 – 10:30 am. Please sign up below.
Volunteering at the Food Bank is in compliance with Local Health Officer:
The Food Bank work is considered an "Essential Activity." Food is a necessity of life. Without the preparation and distribution of the food boxes to senior citizens throughout Orange County, many will go without food.
Of course no one should work if their health is compromised, if they are age 65 and older or if they feel there is any threat to their health or to the health of others.
Many volunteers have asked to work again. Between their request to work and the OC Food Bank's urgent need to prepare more food boxes FOCUS will serve at the Food Bank on March 28.
What we will do:
We will begin with a brief tour of the Food Bank and a presentation describing poverty and hunger in Orange County. Volunteers then work side by side to the beat of music packing food boxes that are distributed to poor and hungry seniors in Orange County.
Wear your FOCUS T-shirt & closed toed shoes:
If you have a FOCUS t-shirt from the last two Saturdays or from another volunteer activity please wear it. If you don't have one you will receive one on Saturday. And please wear closed toed shoes.
Bring 4 cans of food to donate.
A contribution of 4 cans of food for the Food Bank would be very much appreciated
Thank you in advance for your love for the poor and hungry seniors in Orange County.
May God be with you and your family always.
