Volunteer

There are many ways to get involved at Focus: HOPE

We wouldn’t be Focus: HOPE without volunteers. We are always welcoming volunteers to help in all of our projects and departments. The generous support from our volunteers will help us expand our impact -- and will provide a meaningful experience for those donating their time on our behalf.

Volunteer Opportunities

Food Program

The Commodity Supplemental Food Program, established in 1971, assists low-income senior citizens age 60 and older and currently provides 44,000 monthly food packages to help with basic needs

  • Pack Food Boxes

    Volunteers that participate will be “pre-packing” or boxing up food items for our homebound seniors. Or “cutting stock”, that is Focus: Hope lingo for opening boxes and putting food on pallets

  • Assist Senior Shoppers

    Volunteers that participate will have the opportunity to mingle and assist seniors as they pick up their food, help them to their vehicle, or by “cutting stock” to replenish the food on the distribution floor.

    Focus: HOPE serves 14,000 homebound seniors every month. Volunteers deliver food boxes to our homebound seniors living in the metro-Detroit area. Volunteers must have their own transportation.
