Here at Somebody Cares Tampa Bay we want to take the time to recognize the people and organizations that partner with us. Each month we will take a moment to share with you one of our partners and what they do.
Uncle John's Pride
For many years Uncle John's Pride, a family-owned local meat supplier, has worked with Somebody Cares Tampa Bay to supply high-quality meats and sausages. Thanks to Uncle John's Pride, volunteers and ministry partners have been blessed by being offered delicious meats at our events. But, as they are able, Uncle John's Pride also donates to our food distribution program. Last week, we received a call from Uncle John's Pride that they had a donation for us. But, as is our experience with Uncle John's Pride, their generosity was beyond all expectation. We received 1,700 pounds of meat!
Within 24 hours, ministries from across Tampa Bay were able to pick up the food in time for weekend food distributions across Pinellas and Hillsborough Counties. One ministry partner told us that her church prepares meals for about 100 people in the city of Clearwater every Sunday. The previous Sunday, however, they fed over 250 people. She was so grateful that her church now had enough turkey legs and chicken sausage to meet all their ministry's needs for the entire week.
One way you can support Somebody Cares Tampa Bay is by supporting our ministry partners. The next time you are in Publix, Walmart, Winn-Dixie, or one of the many stores that carry Uncle John's Pride brand of products, you can bring home a delicious, high-quality product and know that Uncle John's Pride understands that we can do more together than apart!
