FOCUS Thrift Shop
Opportunities to volunteer in the FOCUS Thrift Shop abound. We need volunteers who can help us empty the donation bin, sort through the donated items, hang up clothing, price items, create displays in the retail area of the shop and operate the cash register. The Thrift Shop is open for retail sales on Thurs. and Friday from 10am-3pm and Saturday from 10am-1pm but we work behind the scenes all week. If you can spare just an hour a month to help sort or price items we’d love to have you join us so please contact us!

FOCUS Emergency Services Office / Food Bank
We are always in need of compassionate volunteers in the FOCUS Office. We try to help our clients in many ways through this ministry, by bagging and distributing donated food, assisting with payment of bills, and offering personal counseling and advice in areas where we can assist. Computer skills are helpful and training is provided. The office is open Tuesday and Wednesday each week from 10am-2pm. If you would like to sign up for a monthly 4-hour shift please contact us!

FOCUS Thanksgiving Food Program
It takes a wonderful and dedicated team to prepare for the Annual Thanksgiving Food Program. We need volunteers to move food to the distribution point, sort and bag food, distribute food the day of the event, deliver food to those who cannot pick it up, and much more. We need Thanksgiving volunteers in October/November each year but we can take your contact info anytime and then call you when we’re preparing our volunteer schedules. If you’d like to help please contact us!
