Metro Development Group is committed to giving back to our local areas to better the lives of all residents, not just those living in our neighborhoods.
Here are a few examples of how we strive to give back to the community to make a difference in a meaningful way:
Habitat for Humanity with the Tampa Bay Builders Association
Metro joined the Tampa Bay Builders Association to volunteer with Habitat for Humanity in November. Members of our team put on their sneakers and safety goggles, and spent a day building a home for a deserving local family.
Habitat for Humanity homes are designed to be a “hand up, not a hand out,” and we were honored to lend our support to this worthy cause with our fellow TBBA members.
Holiday toy donations for Metropolitan Ministries and Toys for Tots
Metro donates toys to local families in need each year over the holidays.
Greg Singleton, Metro’s president, has been volunteering with Metropolitan Ministries for the last four years. In addition to volunteering his time with the charity, Greg also donates toys on behalf of Metro, including skateboards and bicycles.
We also collect toy donations for Toys for Tots during our annual “Spot the Elf” holiday event, which invites local realtors for a holiday-themed scavenger event through the model homes in a Metro Places community. In 2016, the event was held at Waterleaf in Riverview and the realtors who attended contributed dozens of toys to the cause.
Live oak relocation in new Pasco County community
In addition to serving the community, Metro is also committed to preserving the natural Florida landscape when building new developments. While building the roads in a new Metro Places community in Pasco County, we strategically relocated several live oak trees in order to keep them in the neighborhood.
Metro worked with local arborists to carefully remove and replant these beautiful trees so that wildlife and future residents of the community can continue to enjoy them for years to come.
Other ways Metro is giving back
Other organizations Metro recently sponsored, donated to or volunteered with include the Joshua House for abused and neglected children, The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, The Boys and Girls Club, Paddle Against Cancer, the Wimauma Senior Center Community Garden, The Night of Hope Gala for diabetes research and The Salvation Army.
