This May Sound Cheesy…But We Love Our Team!

On the sweetest day of the year, we showed some love for our hard working team members with a Philly Cheesesteak Buffet. Everyone feasted on traditional cheesesteaks with all the fixins’, as well as healthier chicken and salad options.

Hearts beat a little faster when everyone got to try out the new Gourmet Coffee machine – offering 60 different varieties of coffee drinks, with beans ground to order. It’s just another way we say “Thanks a LATTE for all you do!”

Eagles Spirit Soars!

Last Friday, Focus Forward team members donned their finest Eagles gear to show support for the Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles, as they faced the New Orleans Saints in an NFC divisional playoff game. Unfortunately the Saints prevailed, bringing a disappointing end to the season. There’s always next year!

Record Breaking 2018 Food Drive!

Focus Forward smashed their 2017 Philabundance Food Drive record by donating 409 pounds of food! Congratulations to the Team for coming in just over our ambitious goal by nine pounds, and special thanks to Recruiting Director Mark Mundy for coordinating transport of the bounty. In addition, Focus Forward will make a generous monetary donation, which enables Philabundance to buy food in bulk, directly from manufacturers. Every $1 buys 2 meals to feed the hungry.

What a fabulous way to wrap up the season of giving!
