Metropolitan Ministries Presents FairWarning with Golden Barrel Award for Dedication and Outstanding Service to Others

Leading Tampa Charity Honors FairWarning for Charitable Donations

Clearwater, Fla. October 17, 2019 – On October 16, 2019, Metropolitan Ministries named FairWarning the recipient of the Golden Barrel Award. Given quarterly, the award recognizes organizations, schools, businesses, and drive champions for their dedication and service to the community.

FairWarning employees collected and donated more than 10,000 pounds of food last year as part of the largest Tampa Bay holiday season food drive of 2018.

“We’re proud to support Metropolitan Ministries and the charitable services they provide to the Tampa Bay community,” said Sarah Maieritsch, Team Engagement Manager at FairWarning. “This award is truly an honor, and we plan to continue our partnership throughout this years’ holiday season with another food drive and a volunteer service day to give back to those in need.”

Metropolitan Ministries’ Paula Dang, Manager of Community Donations, along with Patrick Davis, Senior Manager of Corporate Partnerships, visited FairWarning to show their appreciation and bestow the award.

“For the past 10 years, FairWarning has been a wonderful community partner of ours and has continuously supported our mission in serving those in need,” said Paula. “Every quarter I have the honor of choosing an organization as our Golden Barrel Award recipient and I knew that FairWarning was deserving of being highlighted for all they do in the community. FairWarning embodies an organization with a heart to serve the community and that is why I chose them as our 2018 Golden Barrel Award recipient for the incredible drive they hosted in December where they collected 10,200 pounds of food.”

A non-profit organization based in Tampa, Florida, Metropolitan Ministries works with donors, volunteers, and community members to provide food, shelter, and other services to the homeless or those in danger of becoming homeless. Every year, the organization hosts a food drive to feed hungry families. Throughout the year, Metropolitan Ministries serves 1.6 million meals, provides nearly 200,000 collective nights of shelter, and helps more than 30,000 families through outreach services.
