Newsletter: AUGUST 17TH, 2021 Volunteer Interns

Saying Goodbye and Good Luck to Our Wonderful Interns!

FOCUS Southern California was blessed to have had four exceptional interns from St. Innocent Service Works & Projects serve with us as volunteers in Southern California for 10 weeks this summer. The interns were Maria Anamateros from Massachusetts, Elise Buschbacker from Arizona, Gabriel Fahling from Illinois and Daniel Kroll from Washington. 
Most importantly, the interns worked at our weekly FOCUS Food and Diaper Distributions and significantly helped with other FOCUS projects.  Additionally, the interns served with several of our nonprofit partners, including Family Assistance Ministries, Giving Children Hope, Orange County Food Bank, The Giving Farm, We Help, Inc., and Westminster School District.
As a result, we continue to receive positive feedback from our nonprofit partners, stating how Maria, Elise, Gabriel, and Daniel were excellent workers and that they adored having them serve at their organizations.
Subsequently, the internship with FOCUS ended on August 13 and we already miss their presence.  We wish Maria, Elise, Gabriel and Daniel safe travels back home and pray they continue to serve where God calls them by helping others in need.

Thank you for your hard work on Saturday at the OC Food Bank.

FOCUS made 1800 senior citizen food boxes!!!

FOCUS North America served as an intermediary between the parish and the school. All parties involved were blessed. This is a great project for all ages and is scalable for large or small groups or communities.
If you are interested in having your church or organization fill backpacks with supplies, and then donated to a FOCUS partner school in your area, please contact our National Programs Coordinator, John Moxen or 1-866-267-3083, ext. 709
