Your donations are welcome!

More than 200 children and their families live at Metropolitan Ministries’ MiraclePlace® day-in and day-out. But that’s not all. Nearly 25,000 families get help at the Ministries every year. Meeting the ever-increasing need of Tampa Bay depends on the generosity and commitment of community partners.

To maximize the impact of your contribution:

Step 1: Determine whether or not the items you wish to donate are useful.

We can only make use of items that are new, nearly new or gently used. Our mission is to promote dignity among those we serve by providing them with the things they need to make a fresh start.

Step 2: Drop Off.

Metropolitan Ministries Donations Warehouse at Tampa Campus: 2101 N. Florida Avenue, Tampa 33602. Corner of Frances St. and Florida Ave., behind Bloom Again Thrift Store near the large sign that says “Donations.” Assisted drop-off hours: Monday-Saturday, 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Step 3: Schedule a Donation Pick up.

Residential pickup is available for gently used furniture items and other large donations.
