Feed children who are going hungry this Thanksgiving

Posted on October 20, 2016

Thanksgiving is all about food, family and laughter. But did you know that 1 in 4 families in Tampa Bay struggle to put food on the table?

Right now, families in need could really use your help. $1.96 is all it takes to provide a complete Thanksgiving meal. That means you can feed an entire family – two adults and two children – for only $7.84.

Will you give a gift to feed 4, 10, or perhaps 20 families this holiday season?

The special part about Thanksgiving here at Metropolitan Ministries is that it is more than simply providing food. Sara says our meals showed her that people actually cared. And after feeling that compassion, she began to find the strength to look for help with the other problems she was facing: domestic violence and unemployment.

That’s how lives begin to change. This Thanksgiving, that change begins with a hot meal, which you can provide for just $1.96. And right now, a generous donor will match your gift through October 31st!

You will be able to help twice as many families.

If you have been blessed this year, please take this opportunity to be a blessing to a family in need or a hungry child who may live right around the corner from you.

Thank you for being HOPE.
