TAMPA BAY – The Tampa Bay Lightning honored Moses Brown as the 24th Lightning Community Hero of the season during the first period of tonight’s game against the Vancouver Canucks. Brown, who received a $50,000 donation from the Lightning Foundation and the Lightning Community Heroes program, will donate the money to Feed our Children Ministries, Caregivers, Pastor on Patrol, Emmnaul, New Testament Outreach Clinic and Calvary Community Clinic.
In 1986, Brown founded Feed Our Children Ministries, Inc., a non-profit organization supporting the Greater Tampa Bay community, orphans, elderly and the poor throughout the world by providing food, clothing, transportation, housing, temporary shelter, counseling, financial assistance and spiritual support.
Brown, a minister by trade believes in reaching people beyond the pulpit, and lending a hand on the frontlines. This belief has influenced Brown’s philanthropic work in the Tampa Bay community. Under Brown’s leadership, Feed Our Children Ministries has attracted over 65 committed volunteers who help deliver the organization’s monthly contribution of 80 hours of service, 3,500 meals and tutoring for 45 kids.
