Delaware North leaders cap community outreach project with $40,000 charitable donation

On Wednesday, March 13, more than 200 leaders from Delaware North came together at Metropolitan Ministries in Tampa, Fla., for a community outreach project. The event culminated in the presentation of a $40,000 donation to the non-profit organization.

The group – made up of executives and managers from Delaware North’s operating locations across four continents – tackled several volunteer projects around the campus of Metropolitan Ministries, including meal production, kitchen prep, gardening, and the renovation of educational and recreational spaces.

The group was in Tampa for the company’s Global Leadership Meeting, which brought together leaders from Delaware North’s operating locations around the world. It was the first time the meeting was held in Tampa, where Delaware North operates food and beverage services at both Amalie Arena, home of the NHL’s Tampa Bay Lightning, and Tampa International Airport. 

“The 200-plus locations where Delaware North operates worldwide are more than just places we do business – they are the communities that our associates call ‘home.’ That includes Tampa, where our company has proudly operated for 30 years,” said Delaware North Co-CEO Jerry Jacobs Jr. “By donating our time and resources here this week, we hope our leaders continue to feel energized and encouraged to continue this hands-on approach in the places where they live and work year-round.”

Metropolitan Ministries is a non-denominational organization whose mission is to care for individuals and families that are hungry, homeless and those at risk of becoming homeless in the Tampa community through services that alleviate suffering, promote dignity and instill self-sufficiency.
