This holiday season, join the Metropolitan Ministries team and provide a holiday experience that is out of reach for so many struggling families in the Tampa Bay area. We are looking for dedicated volunteers to take part in a unique leadership opportunity that you don’t want to miss!
COVID - 19 Precautions
We are following all CDC guidelines, which include many changes at our holiday tent and partner locations. All volunteers and guests are required to wear masks or face coverings and have their temperature checked. Clients and donors will remain in their vehicles. Handwashing for 20 seconds and additional protective measures will be in place for all volunteers and staff.
Thanks to our 65 partners for their tremendous support as a network of care to make the holidays happen for at-risk and struggling families.
