Because inventory at the Food Banks are at an all-time low, the MainPlace Mall Emergency Food Drive-Through Assistance in Santa Ana is on hold. FOCUS will therefore volunteer on Saturday at the OC Food Bank to pack boxes of food.
FOCUS Orange County is a proud partner with the Power Of One Foundation and the Orange County Food Bank. We work together to combat hunger in our neighborhoods.
Before the crisis, 1 out of every 8 Californians did not know where their next meal was coming from. And with the COVID-19 pandemic and the current state of emergency, the needs are even greater. With people losing their jobs, others being furloughed, and some businesses being unable to reopen, our community needs our help more than ever.
FOCUS remains on the frontlines, supporting the most vulnerable during this crisis along with our wonderful partners and community members. We are in great need of financial donations to support our efforts. We need to obtain supplies like boxes, bags, packing tape, tape guns, tables, chairs, canopies, masks, gloves, hand sanitizer and cleaning products. We are also in the process of leasing a warehouse. We need your assistance to pay the rent. We also need a box truck, pallet jack, pallet lift/stacker, pallet racks with wire shelves, rolling industrial shelves, rolling ladder, walk-in refrigerator, walk-in freezer, and alarm equipment for the warehouse.
Thank you for your continued love and service to our neighbors in need.
