Metropolitan Ministries' Pasco County site will receive a much-needed boost with a $50,000 donation from the Tampa Bay Lightning, in honor of Rev. Dan Campbell being named the 17th Lightning Community Hero of the year. The announcement was made in December.
Campbell was pastor of Community UMC, Holiday, before it closed and reopened as Joining Hands Community Mission, a Metropolitan Ministries outreach site. He currently serves as development director for Metropolitan Ministries in Pasco.
The awards selection committee was impressed by Campbell's efforts to help people in poverty, especially targeting the hungry and homeless. Click here to read the announcement.
