For the last few years Renovation Angel has supported the amazing charitable efforts of FOCUS North America. This holiday season we are proud to continue that tradition with a $30,000 grant in support of their Holiday Meal Program.
A Christmas Gift
Seraphim Danckaert, the new Executive Director at FOCUS said, “Renovation Angel’s support will help us provide 600+ families who have just transitioned out of homelessness with a Christmas dinner, hats, gloves, and toys.” He continued, “In short, this grant will go toward giving these families a merry Christmas at a critical time in their growth toward independence.”
Through the provision of social and human development services, FOCUS North America helps the poor and needy in North America. They bring communities, parishes, and partners together in hands-on activities – uniting giver and the underserved — to help transform lives and break the cycle of poverty that afflicts so many in our society.
“One of the things I love most about FOCUS is that their services are provided without discrimination of any kind. Though they are faith based, they do not require any faith commitment from anyone they help,” said Steve Feldman, President of Renovation Angel. FOCUS is dedicated to transforming the lives of the homeless and poor in America, moving them from dependency to self-sufficiency, by providing food, occupation, clothing, understanding and shelter.
Our entire Renovation Angel family is so happy to continue supporting this great organization. Thank you for all that you do! To learn more about FOCUS, please visit their website HERE.
