Jeff Vinik, Owner of the Tampa Bay Lightning, joined AM Tampa Bay to discuss how he and his family will be providing advertising across several forms of media (print, outdoor, television, radio, social and digital) to help people get information on where they can get financial assistance during these hard times.
The Vinik’s have committed $300,000 to Metropolitan Ministries and are providing over 300 food boxes each day for April (22 days) total that is over 6,600 f boxes.
Each box provides between 3-4 days of food, so this works out to be between 60k and 80k meals, and 70-80% of them going to families with children.
It will also cover rent and utility assistance for April- that should help stabilize about 1,200-1,300 families.
