The Annual Backpack to School Supply Drive
Come see how much we all remember from grade school and give back to the community during the our Annual "Buzzed" Spelling Bee + Backpack Drive.
Bring a backpack or $20 donation to join the live event. We're looking for sponsors, donations, and help spreading the word!
Join In On the Fun
Have fun while giving back.
Join us for the live Backpack Drive and "Buzzed" Spelling Bee.
The first 75 attendees who donate get:
-- Free bowl from Ciccio Cali
-- BOGO beer from 81Bay (from a select menu)
-- Multiple chances to win prizes from our awesome sponsors.
Event is held at 81Bay Brewing Company located at 4465 W. Gandy Blvd. in South Tampa.
Metropolitan Ministries provides backpacks, uniforms and school supplies to more than 5,000 children annually. We're here to help them!
Give Kids What They Need to Succeed
We raise money to buy backpacks to support the Metropolitan Ministries #BackpacksofHope program.
All proceeds will be used to buy backpacks that will be distributed to kids in need in the Tampa Bay area.
Just a small donation can ensure that a child goes back to school with their very own new book bag!
