When kids have new school supplies of their own:

  • Grades, classroom behavior, and engagement improve
  • Self-esteem increases
  • Attitudes toward school and learning strengthen

Metropolitan Ministries and Reach St. Pete work to get kids the supplies they need by providing backpacks, uniforms, and school supplies to thousands of children each year. We work to help them.

Every year, we raise money to buy one of the most expensive items on a back-to-school list -- backpacks! 

We've provided backpacks for over 1,650 kids, and we hope to add to that amount this year!

Now, we're ready to add to the pile. A donation of just $10 can buy a backpack for child in need!

We have already collected over 100 backpacks this year thanks to our amazing sponsor Align HCM.

Want To Make a Donation from Your Business? 

Business sponsors who donate $100 (which equals 10 backpacks) get:

  • Branded posts to share through social media
  • A link to your website on the 2022 donors page (which is great for SEO!)
  • Gift receipt from Metropolitan Ministries which is 501 (C)(3) tax-exempt organization
  • The good feeling of knowing you helped 10 kids in the Tampa Bay area!
