Metropolitan Ministries

Registration is now open. Please share with any friends and family that may like to register. Pop-up sites have limited remaining availability.


Thanksgiving and December Holidays registration will be done separately, but may be done at the same time.


What’s New:

This year we are offering full online and in person registration. While on our website your family will have the option to sign up for convenient locations to receive Hope. To mitigate additional travel we are partnering with strategic likeminded organizations to offer more sites across Tampa Bay.


Do I qualify:

Families with minor children and seniors struggling financially who are currently receiving: SNAP, SSI, SSD, unemployment benefits, Medicaid, cash assistance or struggling from loss of hours and employment due to COVID-19.


How do I register?:

•      Your family will have the option to choose a drive-through or delivery (additional qualifications and verification for delivery with very limited quantity)

•      Click the option for Holiday Assistance that best meets the needs of your family

•      Choose the closest location with appointments still available

•      Fill in your family information (Uploads will be required for online applications)

•      Choose to receive for Thanksgiving, December Holidays or both and select a date

•      Receive your confirmation by email and text


What do I bring on my pickup day?

Please arrive with your email, text or printed confirmation and Photo ID. Children registered for toys will be verified for Christmas.
