METALCON Selects Feeding Tampa Bay as Local Charity for this year’s “Give Back”
Hunger is closer than you think. According to Feeding America, “Due to the effects of the coronavirus pandemic, more than 42 million people may experience food insecurity, including a potential 13 million children.” Hunger affects everyday people, every day. This October, METALCON will continue its annual tradition of supporting the local community where the show takes place as we partner with FEEDING TAMPA BAY, part of the national Feeding America network. Feeding Tampa Bay is focused on providing food to over 1 million food insecure families in the 10-county area of West Central Florida.
Food insecurity can affect anyone: our neighbors, coworkers, the elderly, and classmates. Many people who need our help work hard day in and day out, but are one layoff, tragedy or natural disaster away from needing assistance. Feeding Tampa Bay honors and serves all neighbors compassionately and free of prejudice. Every dollar donated equals exponential meals and will help Tampa Bay be “hunger-free.”
Hunger is a Challenge That Doesn’t Discriminate
We invite you to help us help Feeding Tampa Bay by making an online donation today or onsite at this year’s show. As in past years, your name will be entered into a daily raffle with your qualified donation (minimum $20). Why wait until you are at the show? Donate ONLINE today!
METALCON has been “giving back” since 1995 to national and local charities, proudly having donated upwards of a half a million dollars in goods, services and/or funds to non-profit organizations and worthy causes serving local host communities. We hope you’ll join us this year in giving back to the Tampa community to show our appreciation for the many years of being an excellent host to the show and the metal building community.
