BlueGrace Logistics & Metropolitan Ministries gear up for back-to-school season through Backpacks of Hope!

Can you hear those school bells ringing? As BlueGrace employees begin to prepare their own children for back-to-school, we’re also thinking about all the children in the Tampa Bay community and the folks at Metropolitan Ministries. Metropolitan Ministries is partnering with local school districts and organizations, including YMCA of Brandon to gather and distribute important school supplies to less fortunate children throughout Hillsborough County. Each year, Backpacks of Hope makes a difference in the lives of those in the Tampa Bay community, getting children excited about the new school year and into the learning spirit!
