The Lightning organization is once again volunteering at Metropolitan Ministries. Last year a couple of players were on hand- Brett Clark, Eric Brewer, Ryan Malone, and Nate Thompson, if I’m remembering correctly -as well as others within the franchise to help out. This year Coach Boucher, Ass. Coach Raymond, Ass. Coach LaCroix, video coach Nigel Kirwan, Rick Peckham, Bobby “The Chief” Taylor, Brittany Zion, Thunderbug, among others, will be assisting.
Bring your food donation down to the Metropolitan Ministries Holiday Tent at 400 W. Palm Ave. Tampa, FL 33602. The Lightning will be accepting donations from 8:30am to 11:30am. Even if you can’t make it down there this morning, you can still drop off donations to Metropolitan Ministries.
You can get more information on the Metropolitan Ministries holiday food drive by clicking this link. They help people year round, but during the holidays they are always in need of more food. They help over 25 thousand people this holiday season, and more than 26 thousand children. They mainly help the homeless and families who are struggling to stay afloat during rough financial times.
