Metro’s Holiday Tent will be back this year and so will the Christmas miracles!

I’ve been serving at Metropolitan Ministries for 14 years. And I’ve never seen anything like the COVID-19 crisis.

Thankfully, Tampa Bay has a history of coming together to help people in need. I’m so proud of the community, our staff and volunteers, and the grateful hearts of our clients, all working together to get through these difficult times.

If you’re not familiar with Metro’s Holiday Tent, it has become Ground Zero for our pandemic response. We’ll be going all out from Thanksgiving to Christmas, helping local families to not just get through the season, but to find hope.

This year, we hope to serve 50,000 families in six counties. We’re focused on getting food to desperate people, many of whom have lost hope. Until you’ve seen our Holiday Tent in action, you might not realize what a difference you can make with your financial support right now. That’s why I invite you to turn the page and discover how this one-of-a-kind ministry can bring relief, stability, and, yes, hope, to a family in need this holiday season.

Thank you. God bless you and Merry Christmas!

Tim Marks, Metro CEO & President
