All proceeds, canned food, and other donations to benefit under-served Tampa Bay children and families

Benzer Pharmacy is proud to announce that it is opening up its heart—and its doors—for a fall food drive at its corporate office in Tampa.

Organized in partnership with Metropolitan Ministries, the special three-week event runs from this Tuesday, October 30th through Monday, November 19th in which donations of canned food and other non-perishable items will be accepted at the front desk during regular weekday business hours.

According to campaign materials, Metropolitan Ministries currently provides 2,500 hot meals every day to our homeless and at-risk neighbors. Naturally, all Benzer employees, their friends, and family members are encouraged to make donations to help alleviate hunger for under-served children and families throughout Tampa Bay.

Speaking on behalf of the “Hope is Here” initiative, President Alpesh Patel was quick to praise the work of the many volunteers at Metropolitan Ministries who package the donations into “boxes of hope,” intended to feed a family of four for three days at a time.

“The Tampa Bay community has given us so much as an organization, joining together in support of Metropolitan Ministries’ efforts to help others was something we just had to do,” Patel said. “If anyone reads this message and finds themselves in a position to help—and in the neighborhood of the corporate office—we will open our doors to their donations as well. Just drop off what you can at the front desk, and we’ll take it from there.”

In addition to canned items, Metropolitan Ministries is also looking for gifts of boxed cereal, rice, pasta, soup, pudding, and baby food.

Benzer Pharmacy’s corporate headquarters are located at 5908 Breckenridge Parkway in Tampa and will be open to accepting all donations of canned goods and other non-perishable food items during normal business hours, Monday through Friday, from 8 am to 5 pm.
