Metropolitan Ministries ‘urgently’ needs volunteers after massive drop

Volunteers are wanted to help build food boxes and for other needs going into the holiday season.

TAMPA, Fla. — Metropolitan Ministries is asking the community to consider helping out because the need is just too great.

The organization says on Wednesday, 125 volunteer shifts will go unfilled following a 60-percent drop in volunteers largely brought on by the coronavirus pandemic.

The pandemic, of course, continues – and families still need help. Metropolitan Ministries reports, in the meantime, its staff are filling the gap in addition to their normal duties.
