What is the Winter Initiative?
Our Winter Local Initiative, “Community Connections,” is an opportunity for 20 parishes to connect with a local organization that serves people in need of food and fellowship.
- FOCUS North America will work with your parish to provide food and fellowship for a ministry in your community, such as a family shelter, after school program, or another homeless or children’s ministry.
- Chick-fil-A has generously donated 20 gift certificates in the amount of $250 each, which will allow us to partner with 20 parishes.
- Identify an organization in need and facilitate a connection between the people they serve and your parishioners. Your parish can also suggest an organization to work with.
- Send you the Chick-fil-A gift cards. We will work with you and the organization to find the best day, time, and way to share the meal.
- Work with the organization to provide your parish with a list of needful items that can be donated to the organization.
- Provide suggested activities for a potential event that brings your parishioners together with the people the organization serves.
