As part of our 31 Days of Giving, I volunteered at Focus: HOPE, one of our MiCAFE community partners, during it’s annual Special Senior Holiday Delivery Program. Over 300 metro-Detroit volunteers picked up food boxes that included turkeys, vegetables, fruits, canned goods, and a variety of packaged items to deliver to approximately 1200 senior citizens. I worked with Khristi Miller, Volunteer Coordinator at Focus: HOPE, assisting her, other staff, and volunteers in registering the many volunteers who were delivering the food boxes.
It was cold inside and outside of the warehouse where cars, waiting to pick up the food boxes, stretched for blocks, but the warmth, generated by the good hearts of all the people that participated in this event, could be felt throughout all of the metropolitan Detroit community. I am so glad that I had the opportunity to volunteer and Focus on Hope!
