Metropolitan Ministries provides faithful answers for poor, homeless and at-risk families living in our community through services that alleviate suffering, promote dignity and instill self-sufficiency as an expression of the ongoing ministry of Jesus Christ. The Ministries, a faith-based and community-supported non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization, is funded through the charitable support of the community, including individuals, businesses, congregations, schools, foundations and civic groups.
The Ministry projects needs will increase during Thanksgiving and Christmas with so many in need. They are currently hoping to serve more than 25,000 families across the Bay Area. Items in most demand are grocery gift cards (for turkeys), cereal, yams, canned fruit and boxed stuffing. Fans can also donate $10, or the equivalent of one turkey, to a family in need via text by sending the word METRO to 20222 (standard message rates may apply).
Metropolitan Ministries is a non-profit, nondenominational, faith based organization that faithfully provides answers for poor and homeless families. Founded in 1972 by 13 downtown Tampa Churches, this community supported ministry has earned the trust and support of charitable individuals, volunteers, businesses, churches, synagogues, civic organizations, schools and collaborative partners. Metropolitan Ministries does not depend on government funding and is not a United Way agency. Today, Metropolitan Ministries offers a wide spectrum of supportive services to alleviate suffering, promote human dignity and instill self-sufficiency. As Metropolitan Ministries celebrates over 39 Years of Hope, the Ministries is becoming known beyond the Tampa Bay community as one of America's most effective and innovative caregivers. Metropolitan Ministries is located at 2002 North Florida Avenue, Tampa, FL 33602.
