We are continuously blown away by the generosity of those who live and work in the Tampa Bay region. Two of the newest arrivals to the area just made a major contribution to help those in need. Tom Brady, the Bucs new QB, just scored a major touchdown for Tampa Bay without setting foot on the field. He, along with Gisele Bündchen donated money to Feeding Tampa Bay that will provide 750,000 meals for those in need in the region.
Feeding Tampa Bay has provided nearly 2,600 meals to kids every day, and delivered more than 8,000 meals to senior centers in an effort to provide for those who need the help.
Feeding Tampa Bay, a member of Feeding America, serves over 600,000 hungry people across West Central Florida. For every $1 you donate, we can provide 10 meals to a family in need.
We welcome @TomBrady, @giseleofficial and their family to our community and thank them as they #StandwithFTB by providing 750,000 meals to support our children, families and seniors throughout the 10 – county region that we serve.
