FOCUS Appeal for Volunteers

FOCUS is doing more and looking for more volunteers.  A commitment to a specific program and time slot helps us to know how many more volunteers we may need in order to run the program smoothly.  

The Clothes Closet is open on Wednesdays (11-2 pm) and Thursdays from (4-7 pm). Volunteers are needed during these hours to assist clients with their shopping and on Mondays and Thursdays (11-2) to help sort donations.

The Food Shelf operates 10:00-11:30 am on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month. We need volunteers to assist clients and sort and shelve donations between the hours of 9:15 and noon. We also need volunteers to help divide larger items such as flour, sugar, and rice into smaller bags for distribution. This can be done at a time that is convenient for you.

Volunteers make sandwiches and assemble the lunches for our Sandwich Program on Thursdays from 11 am to 1 pm. Volunteers are needed for all programs.  You don't have to volunteer for the total time slot -- any amount of time helps! Thank you! Contact Judy Purman if you have questions or can sign up to volunteer!

The MLK Memorial lecture is an annual event at St Elizabeth Orthodox Church that pays tribute to the legacy of Martin Luther King by honoring his commitment to the biblical imperative, “in Christ, there is neither Jew nor Greek.” Each year, the lecture will explore biblical texts that deepen our understanding of St Paul’s teaching, so vital to the ministry of Dr King. The 2020 lecture will be given by Fr. Paul Nadim Tarazi, professor emeritus, St Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary. Details here.
