We have all been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. The shutdown has impacted our business, closed our schools, thrown millions out of work, and changed our lives in ways that will continue to unfold in the weeks and months to come. Hillsborough County is once again seeing numbers rise when it comes to COVID infections and hospitalizations. Through all of this Metropolitan Ministries has been there to provide food, shelter, and assistance to those in need. The numbers have been truly amazing. They have seen a 75% increase in the number of people requesting assistance and the majority of these have been first-time recipients. PAR would like to step up in this time of need to make a difference in our community by partnering with Metropolitan Ministries to help the most vulnerable among us.
Update: As of the closing date of July 25 - the PAR team has raised over $3600 to benefit Metropolitan Ministries. Thank you for your generous support of this fantastic organization.
