Considering the state the world is in right now due to the ongoing pandemic, we could all use a bit of uplifting news, right?
Well, today, we can thank Buccaneers left tackle Donovan Smith for a bit of positivity. The 26-year-old provided dinner last night for the folks at Tampa’s Metropolitan Ministries, doing so while also supporting a local restaurant:
Tonight’s dinner has been provided by @Buccaneers player @DSmith_76. Our resident families are enjoying a full spread plus desert! This also supports @TBMiseEnPlace owned by @misemaryann. Thank you for being #Hope! pic.twitter.com/piop0HcHD9— Metropolitan Ministries (@MetroMinistries) May 5, 2020
Metropolitan Ministries offers care for poor and homeless people in the community, so especially at a time like this, it definitely had to be a major help for Smith to give in such a way. And for him to do it through a local business simply adds to the kindness of it all.
In what has been a hard time for many, one of the continuously positive aspects of this whole situation has been the way people have come together to lend help however they can. The Bucs have given their fair share over the past few months, with fantastic gestures from the organizational level itself, as well as a lot of the team’s players.
Everyone is obviously hoping for a chance to see Tampa Bay rack up some big wins on the field this fall, but in the meantime, we’re seeing them contribute to big wins in the community. And that’s always a good thing.
Kudos to you, Donovan. Thanks for making a difference. I guess this means we can forgive you for waiting five years to finally try a Publix sub.
