Salvation Army Bell Ringing

On July 11th a group of kids from Family Focus rang the bells for the Salvation Army Summer Kettle Campaign. Special thanks to all who stopped by to drop some change in the bucket!

Cambridge Area School Supply Drive

Family Focus will be collecting school supplies from August 1 – August 11 at Grace Lutheran Church for children in the Cambridge area. On August 4th, we’ll be passing the Noisy Bucket during service at Grace to collect money from those who’d rather give a financial contribution. Common supplies needed include notebooks, folders, pencils, pens, colored markers, 24-pack crayons, scissors, rulers, colored pencils, erasers, pencil boxes, backpacks, glue sticks, bottled glue, expo markers, watercolor paints, and thin black sharpies. Supply donations can be placed in the designated box in the fellowship hall. Items and money collected will be brought to C.A.R.T. for distribution.

Family Focus Community Campfire Cookout
