Metropolitan Ministries has partnered with Sunshine Thrift Stores and Collection Services Management to collect household items and clothing from the general public. Your donations to our partner, Sunshine Thrift Stores (FL #36424) help sustain Metropolitan Ministries’ meal programs throughout the Tampa Bay area and provide affordable clothing to our clients.

Collection Services Management uses direct mail (have you seen the yellow card in your mailbox?) and other methods to notify the public of items needed. Trucks are then dispatched, providing curbside pickups, to neighborhoods to collect the donations. Donated items are then sold to local thrift stores and the money generated will be used to help the Metropolitan Ministries with its core mission, competencies, and programs.

Enlisting a trusted and registered partner like Sunshine Thrift Store to collect, clean, sort, and repackage items donated to this program allows us to focus our charitable resources on our mission and programs.

But that’s not all! Our partnership with Sunshine Thrift Store provides on the job training in retail sales for our residents.

To report any Curbside Pickup (yellow card) issues, items left outside, or for general servicing needs email us at or call (813) 386-0500.
