Blessing Our Community, One Bag At A Time

Metropolitan Ministries has been serving the Greater Tampa Bay Area for 50 years and counts on volunteers like those with the Pasco Juniors to continue on with their mission to support those that are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. Along with COVID-19, came an overwhelming increase in outreach programs needed to support our community. 244,000 individuals were assisted through COVID-19 emergency outreach and assistance programs through Metropolitan Ministries and continue to look for assistance. 

During the GFWC Pasco Juniors September General Meeting, Deborah Seitz came to speak briefly about these life changing programs and assist our volunteers with filling 85 Blessing Bags for Pasco County homeless individuals. Our members and guests grabbed a bag in hand and filled each with essentials like personal hygiene items, snacks, masks, ponchos and more, all of which were donated by our volunteers or local businesses.
