Metropolitan Ministries

Four members of the Outreach Committee and 2 family members volunteered at Metropolitan Ministries to assist them in getting breakfast, lunch, and dinner prepped to serve to the homeless and at-risk individuals. They serve 75,000 meals each month in Tampa Bay, Hillsborough, Pinellas, Polk, and Pasco counties. Please reach out to Metropolitan Ministries if you would like to donate some time to help this non-profit.



Clothes for Kids

During the month of December, the employees of Tampa Microwave participated in a Giving Tree for Clothes To Kids. The non-profit provides complete wardrobes for children in need in Pinellas and Hillsborough counties. That means a weeks’ worth of outfits for school and they get a pair of sneakers too! This allows the kids they serve to attend school with the confidence and self esteem needed to achieve academic success. Last year, Clothes To Kids provided more than 15,766 wardrobes. Tampa Microwave employees just donated 27 complete wardrobes after collecting $1755.00! ($1625 came in a check from TM and $130 from a remote employee) A great way to begin 2023!


Military Care Packages

The generous employees of Tampa Microwave donated enough items to top last years’ amazing 17 boxes. Some of the committee, along with a couple of family members, were able to put together 21 care packages this year! Some of the donated items included candy, snacks, socks, games, and personal hygiene items. The boxes that are that are being shipped will go to deployed troops in a combat zone who do not have commissary access.



Boots, Brews and BBQ

Kick One Back fundraiser for Clothes to Kids

Two members of TM’s outreach committee, Chris and Katee, attended a fundraiser to raise awareness and the funds needed to give each child a pair of shoes. Clothes To Kids, Inc. has been distributing wardrobes to kids in need for 20 years in both Pinellas and Hillsborough Counties. Low income and in-crisis kids can receive a complete wardrobe (5 pairs of underwear, 5 pairs of socks, 5 tops, 4 bottoms, for girls a dress is optional and a pair of shoes) two times a year. Members of our community outreach team have already committed to volunteer in the Clearwater and St. Pete Clothes to Kids locations during November and December.
