TRINITY, Fla. (Dec. 2, 2015) – The holiday spirit is alive and well as the associates and staff of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Properties Group donated nearly 20 barrels overflowing with food to Metropolitan Ministries in time for the Thanksgiving holiday. The firm hosted the food drive at all of its 16 office locations throughout the Tampa Bay area.
Each office established a donation center featuring big blue barrels which were decorated in accordance with the fall holiday. Due to the incredible support received from agents, staff, and clients all of the festive barrels overflowed with donations of food. Particularly noteworthy were the efforts of the firm’s Port Richey office which compiled an additional 40 bags, each filled with a complete Thanksgiving dinner plus a $20.00 gift card for the purchase of a turkey. The Port Richey office is located at 9108 U.S. Highway 19 in Port Richey.
