33₵ a day can bring HOPE to a child in need

Posted on July 15, 2016

A gift of $10 per month, just 33₵ a day, will ensure that a child will have 3 hot meals and a night’s shelter.

Children who experience the trauma of living on the streets or in their cars often end up repeating the patterns as adults.

Today, I’m asking you to help break this cycle of poverty by feeding & sheltering a hungry child tonight.

Your monthly gift of just $10 will provide little boys, like Billy and his family, a night’s shelter, warm meals and hope.

A hot meal & shelter from Metropolitan Ministries has so many benefits.

  • It gives children energy so they do better in school.
  • It shows them somebody’s looking after them.
  • It eases their fear.
  • It fills their little hearts with HOPE.

Right now, of all of the people living on our campuses in Pasco and Hillsborough, 70% are children.

Without you, many will face the same difficulties as their parents. Help these children rise above hardship.

Offer them hope ─ starting with a hot meal and a safe place to lay their heads. Give these children a chance to find lasting success.

Thank you for helping to strengthen the next generation!
