For the past two months, the USF Sun Dome and Global Spectrum Charities hosted their first Holiday Food Drive in a partnership with Metropolitan Ministries. Donations collected were non-perishable food items for the poor, hungry and homeless men, women and children within the Tampa Bay Area during this holiday season.

Sun Dome Full-Time and Part-Time Staff, USF Athletics, and the fans who attended events at the Sun Dome, were able to collect over 500 various non-perishable food items.

“It is absolutely vital to the success of our facility to build relationships with the local community. We feel it is our responsibility to give back to the community that supports us. I am very pleased with the efforts by all to collect and donate non-perishable food items to a great organization like Metropolitan Ministries” said Global Spectrum’s Trent Merritt, General Manager of the Sun Dome. “We’re already looking forward to hosting another Holiday Food Drive next year and donating twice as much!”
