Several disadvantaged children in the Tampa area will have a brighter Christmas holiday thanks to nearly $1,200 worth of toys and gift cards donated by employees of timeshare resale advertiser to local non-profit group Metropolitan Ministries.

Employees held a toy drive over the first three weeks of December, collecting the gifts which were then donated to Metropolitan Ministries last Friday to be given to the children in time for the holiday.

“These are the programs that make a difference to children in our community, and I am so pleased that our employees decided to give back the way they did,” stated Wes Kogelman, President and CEO, “No child should go through Christmas without a gift, and a big thank you to Metropolitan Ministries for making it so easy to help.”

Metropolitan Ministries helps an estimated 24,000 families in the Tampa Bay region each year over the holidays with donated gifts and food items.
