join the drive. Help local children in need this christmas.
In lieu of a Christmas Card this year, Desmone Architects has decided to help out a great friend of ours at FOCUS Pittsburgh in securing more toys for his organization in the Hill District. We welcome you to join the drive with us.
Focus Pittsburgh opened its doors in 2011 in the city’s Hill District. They donate hundreds of backpacks each week to children in the Hill District and Southside Public Schools. In partnership with the Pittsburgh Orthodox Clergy Brotherhood, they distribute bag lunches on Saturdays to homeless and needy persons in the neighborhood. They also have an emergency food bank, and a [frequently] free community dinner.
Case in point, they are a great organization that continues to support groups of all ages in need within the Pittsburgh Region. We want to help this Christmas, and we would be honored if our friends would like to jump on the FOCUS sleigh with us.
Here’s how it works…
Friends, family, clients, and colleagues of Desmone Architects are encouraged to bring a wrapped gift to our office during normal weekday business hours (9am-5pm) to place under our tree. We are looking for gifts for children ages 9-14 for a boy or girl. Make sure your gift is wrapped and labeled as “boy” or “girl.” Examples of gifts are: Hoodies, Tablets, Bikes, Games, Legos, Star Wars, Craft Kits, etc.
Please have your donations in by Tuesday, December 15th, 2015. Learn more about the entire FOCUS organization HERE.
Feel free to contact us with any questions. Have a safe and happy holiday.
