TypTap’s Thanksgiving Food Drive for Metropolitan Ministries

It’s the season of giving, and this year TypTap partnered with Metropolitan Ministries to inspire hope in Tampa Bay. Our 9th annual Thanksgiving Food Drive exceeded expectations, as members of Team TypTap gathered to collect over 1,700 pounds of food for a total of 160 meal kits!

At TypTap, we believe in the value of teamwork and are always seeking new opportunities to support our community together. Our Thanksgiving Food Drive engages Team TypTap in a meaningful act of service with tangible results. Participation continues to grow each year as our employees experience the significance of their efforts firsthand. Cori Cochran, a Recruiting Coordinator for TypTap, internalizes the importance of community outreach as both a professional and an individual.

“Setting aside time to help people in need is such a small obligation to support and feed the less fortunate,” said Cori. “It gives me a sense of a purpose and sincere gratitude knowing that we can all join in together to create a better world.”

Metropolitan Ministries operates as a source of hope for Tampa Bay, providing comprehensive services for underserved families in the area. The success of the 2021 food drive and our partnership with Metropolitan Ministries establish a personalized impact and lasting connection with our neighbors in need during the holiday season. For Rolando Borrego, a Corporate Services Associate at TypTap, the annual event represents a commitment to broader community outreach.

“I am grateful for each and every food bank that helps families in need. Now, more than ever, hunger is a crisis in America. Yet it is not spoken enough, and people have yet to give enough to help those in need,” Rolando said. “Local food banks help fill this need, but they need our help, our support, and most importantly, our dollars. No one should ever go hungry.”

At TypTap, we seek acts of service that directly connect our team’s empathy and generosity with those who need it most. We’re proud to put our core values in action with meaningful outreach during the holidays and all year long.
