The holidays can also be incredibly stressful and hard for those who may be struggling financially, emotionally, or going through a major life change. That’s where the amazing non-profit Metropolitan Ministries steps in!

Allen Crumbley volunteering in the 2021 Cabernet SleighEvery year, our entire company gets together to collect non-perishable food & toy items for our annual “Cabernet Sleigh”. This event benefits an amazing foundation called Metropolitan Ministries, if you’re in the Tampa Bay area, you may already know who they are. If you don’t, you should! Metropolitan Ministries is a non-profit organization that provides food, shelter, resources, counseling, education, and job training services to low-income and homeless families. Their approach alleviates the suffering while promoting dignity and instilling self-sufficiency for those who need it most in Tampa Bay. They truly are a one-of-a-kind foundation!

Food and toys collected during the 2021 Cabernet Sleigh drive“One of our company initiatives is to give back to the communities in which we live and work, and we believe strongly in the mission and work of Metropolitan Ministries,” said Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Properties Group Broker/Owner Dewey Mitchell. “Each year, our goal is to donate and give more than the year prior to these families in need, and this year we did just that!”

The Sleigh makes two stops to drop off- one at the Met Min location in Holiday, FL, and one at the Tampa location. Our amazing agents, staff, and supportive community came together and collected more than ever this year! 9,271 pounds of food, over 1,205 toys, 21 bikes, 20 bags of new clothing, and $3,285 in gift cards and cash were all donated to Metropolitan Ministries.

Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Properties Group employees volunteering in the 2021 Cabernet Sleigh food & toy drive“This year’s Cabernet Sleigh drive was so inspiring, our agents and staff really opened their hearts and did as much as they could to give back to the community, we could not be prouder of everyone who donated, volunteered, shopped, help promote, and more,” said Allen Crumbley, Broker/Owner of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Properties Group. “It makes this time of year even more meaningful to see our company and its clients come together in support of local families, and it has been heartwarming to help families in need,”

We want to thank everyone who participated in our Cabernet Sleigh this year, our agents and staff went above and beyond, per usual! Our BHHS tribe never fails to put others first, and that we are grateful for. Giving back to those who need it most speaks volumes and we could not be more grateful for our one-of-a-kind agents, staff, and community.

Olivia is southern hospitality wrapped in compassion. She is as sweet as she is fierce and never hesitates when others ask her for help. Aside from being a mega talented writer she also takes on all of our special projects and events as our Brand Strategist. She uses the education she got from Bama {she would insert a “Roll Tide” here} to help give our clients an authentic look at who we are. She’s a larger than life, laid back bundle of joy who is as genuine as they come.
