Members of FOCUS’ staff and board of directors, along with volunteers from ABLE, came together for a neighborhood clean-up this Spring. Volunteers walked a two-city block area, picking up trash. Heading the group, FOCUS board president, Drew Masse, said “FOCUS staff offices are in this neighborhood, and many of our clients live in this area as well. So it’s really up to all of us when it comes to keeping things clean and nice looking.” The weather cooperated for a change, and the volunteers were all left with a smile and a sense of having done something nice for others. FOCUS hosts a neighborhood clean-up several times each year. Keep an eye on our calendar to see when the next one is scheduled – we could use your help!
