We love giving back to our Tampa community in any way we can!
Family Forever of Tampa Bay
One of our favorite local organizations we participate in every year is Family Forever of Tampa Bay (holiday child sponsorship).
This Thanksgiving season, we’re also supporting Metropolitan Ministries. The following is a letter we received from Metropolitan Ministries President and CEO, Tim Marks, thanking us for our donation:
Thanks again for your recent gift to Metropolitan Ministries.
Your gift is not just any gift to us. We know behind every gift to Metro is a heart that cares. That’s why I wanted to send you my personal thanks and to tell you a little bit about us.
The services we provide are comprehensive — from meals to shelter to financial assistance. But at the heart of everything we do is our core mission to alleviate suffering, promote dignity, and instill self-sufficiency.
Each person, each family who comes to us for help has a story. And often, needs go deeper than the basics.
Our programs are designed to provide trauma-informed care, which is based on the knowledge that trauma and chronic stress have a deep and lasting impact on human beings, families, and communities. With this in mind, we change the question from “What is wrong with you?” to “What happened to you?”
Above all, we strive to serve with compassion, understanding, and love every day toward every person we meet.
In everything we do, you are an essential partner in our work. Please visit our website to learn more about us and to find opportunities to stay involved. Thanks again for your gift and welcome to the Metro family!
Tim Marks, President/CEO
