Feed TWO families on Thanksgiving for only $7.84!

Posted on October 31, 2017

Because of the destruction of Hurricane Irma, so many families in Tampa Bay are worried about affording a Thanksgiving meal. The need for your help is bigger than ever!

Thankfully, we have a generous donor willing to DOUBLE your gift. Right now, your gift will help twice the amount of hungry children and families in Tampa Bay.

Like Ben – a boy we met years ago who felt guilty on the rare occasions he sat down to a good meal. “I would see my parents going without so I could have something to eat.” 

And Sara – a friend who told us the meals she received at Metro gave her the strength to look for help with the unemployment and domestic violence she was facing.

A meal during the holidays is more than just food – it’s hope. And right now, your gift of a meal will bring TWICE the hope to people in the community. Two struggling families will be fed a complete Thanksgiving meal this year, thanks to your generosity of only $7.84!

If you were blessed to endure Irma will little to no destruction, please take this opportunity to be a blessing to a hungry child or a family in need. Thank you for being HOPE!
