Be Hope. Give a Turkey.

Posted on November 11, 2016

Give a Turkey Now

In the coming days, thousands of hurting families will visit Metropolitan Ministries for help with food for Thanksgiving. It’s not just about the food. It’s about the HOPE they feel in knowing that somebody cares about them.

Once again, donations for turkeys are down while demand is up. We need your help! Please drop off a frozen turkey to the Metropolitan Ministries Holiday Tent, donate a grocery gift card or purchase a frozen turkey online.

And this is amazing—right now, we have a generous donor that will match your gift!
