Hillsborough County Bar Foundation Announces Matching Gift From Tampa Attorney Steve Yerrid Benefiting Metropolitan Ministries

Tampa attorney Steve Yerrid, in an effort to help the most vulnerable in our community who are being adversely impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, has issued a matching gift challenge to his colleagues in the legal and business community.  Yerrid is personally pledging a gift of up to $100,000 to Metropolitan Ministries to assist their efforts to feed the hungry in Hillsborough County.

The Hillsborough County Bar Foundation is joining Yerrid in this endeavor.  Matching gifts can be made to the Hillsborough County Bar Foundation via the Hillsborough County Bar Association’s website.  Click here to donate online.  Also, checks made payable to the Hillsborough County Bar Foundation can be mailed to the HCBF at 1610 N. Tampa Street, Tampa FL 33602.  Please designate Metropolitan Match on your donation.

The hope is that Yerrid, the Bar Foundation, and the legal and business community can increase the impact of Yerrid’s gift through the matching challenge of up to $100,000 -- potentially creating a $200,000 gift for Metropolitan Ministries. This match is available regardless of the size of the gift and source of the donation.
