Tribute gifts are a thoughtful way to celebrate a birthday, wedding, new baby, graduation or any special occasion. They also serve as a special expression of sympathy by honoring the memory of a friend or relative. Tributes or memorial gifts can honor a person you admire, respect or want to remember in a meaningful way.
Here are some examples of how people have made thoughtful tribute gifts:
Jason and Stacy decided that they already had all the household items they needed. Rather than creating a gift registry for their wedding, they directed their friends and family to Metro Caring’s online virtual food drive to make a gift in their honor. This was a wonderful way to impact the community through their gift of generosity.
Donna made a gift to Metro Caring in honor of her niece who had recently passed away. When the mother received the notice of a gift made in her daughter’s memory, she was deeply touched and grateful that her daughter’s memory would bring joy to others.
In lieu of a big present for Christmas, Caroline asked her mother for a gift to help other people. That year, Caroline presented a cash gift to Metro Caring and came to see firsthand the wonderful work her money helped support.
Your tribute gift to Metro Caring will be the gift of joy for a hungry family through the nourishment of food. Acknowledgments of the gift are provided to the tribute recipient with a letter informing them that a donation has been made in their honor or in memory of their loved one. The amount of the gift is kept confidential and the tax deduction belongs to the donor.
