After a successful conversion of the fall FOCA Walk-a-thon to Serv-a-thon, FOCA is coordinating a similar CRLS Winter Sports Teams Serv-a-thon. By sponsoring an athlete, donors help teams and FOCA raise additional funds required to meet important supplemental needs falling outside of the current school department budget. Meanwhile the athletes provide valuable services to our community, build relationships within the team and earn community service hours required for graduation. Some projects include coaching elementary school age youth during their respective after school and weekend programs, visiting elderly, and clean-up/maintenance of Danehy Park, Fresh Pond and Alewife Reservation. To donate one can respond to individual athletes as they seek support, hit the ‘Donate’ button on the FOCA website (note Serva-a-thon and team in the note section), or contact Larry Childs email@example.com for further information.
