While many of us experience joy during this special time of year, the holidays are hard on families suffering in homelessness and poverty. Food, toys and prayer are offered to those in desperate need by Metropolitan Ministries but the true spirit of the Holiday Tent is that it provides an opportunity to build community. It exemplifies power of love in healing broken lives. The Holiday Tent is a special place where more than 100,000 people from all walks of life, all faiths, all races, different socioeconomic backgrounds—donors, volunteers, partners, civic leaders, corporations, small businesses, congregations, and those in need—all come together and love one another. It's a one-of-a-kind place where you will witness the giving and receiving that exemplify community and allow miracles to happen.
