In the Spirit of Holiday Giving Distasio Law Firm Donates to Feeding Tampa Bay Assistance Program
As the repercussions of COVID-19 continue to affect people in Tampa Bay, our team at Distasio Law Firm wanted to do our part and give back to the community in a time of great need. The holidays can be hard for families who are struggling to make ends meet or even get food on the table. With multiple local businesses closed or at threat of shutting down, some people in the Tampa Bay area have been left unemployed for extended periods of time.
This December, in the spirit of holiday giving, Distasio Law Firm donated $500 to the Feeding Tampa Bay assistance program. This marks our second donation to the charity this year.

Distasio Law Firm Rose to the Occasion When COVID-19 Began Affecting People’s Finances
Our law firm first donated to Feeding Tampa Bay back in June 2020 after noticing the effects COVID-19 had on families and individuals in both Tampa and the rest of the nation. Several lockdowns occurred throughout the United States, putting a strain on small businesses and, in some cases, halting business altogether for certain industries, such as tourism and hospitality. Unemployment rates soared in nearly every state, and some people continue to be unemployed even now in December.
Despite some businesses being reopened to the public, the economy continues to be an issue for many Americans, including people in Tampa. The holidays can be hard-hitting for low-income families in any given year, but the COVID-19 pandemic has brought on new struggles, especially for single-parent households who have the additional concern of taking care of children at home.
As the economic impact of COVID-19 persists in the United States, Distasio Law Firm wants to continue our support to those in need in our area. We hope our donations can help people get the food they need to feed their families and enjoy a better holiday.
Feeding Tampa Bay Helps Keep Their Neighbors Healthy
Feeding Tampa Bay is a charitable organization that dedicates itself to feeding people in West Central Florida. Last year, the organization served over 65 million meals. This year, with COVID-19 putting millions of more people in need in the United States, the organization aims to expand its services. On their website, they currently pledge to:
- Increase their weekly meal distribution from one to two million meals per week
- Offer prepared meal options for families
- Increase their food distribution at the Trinity Cafe to 15,000 hot meals per week
Feeding Tampa Bay also helps distribute meals to children who need food between school meals, elderly residents or disabled persons who cannot leave their home to receive meals, and other food insecure or low-income communities.
Distasio Law Firm chose to support this program because it continues to work hard to help feed our community even when times get tough. Feeding Tampa Bay remains transparent with their donations, asserting that 98% of all donations go straight to the food assistance programs.
Distasio Law Firm Helps People When They Need It Most
With 2020 being a hard year for many people due to COVID-19 and economic setbacks, now more than ever seems like the time to lend out a helping hand. In the spirit of holiday giving, Distasio Law Firm donated to the Feeding Tampa Bay assistance program for the second time this year. Our law firm believes in giving back to the community, which is also why we dedicate ourselves to helping clients fight for the compensation they need to recover from their injuries and related damages.
If you were injured because of someone else’s negligence, we want to help you pursue compensation from the party responsible for your damages. Call our law firm at (813) 259-0022 for a free case evaluation. A team member can review your case and determine if you qualify for a personal injury claim or lawsuit. If so, we can get started on gathering the evidence you need to support your claims.
We are also aware that some people might not have the funds to pay for a lawyer, which is why our law firm works on a contingency-fee-basis. This way, you do not have to worry about paying any attorney’s fees unless we are successful at getting you compensation. Our fee comes out of the settlement or reward you receive, meaning you do not have to pay for our services out of pocket. Call today to learn more about our legal services.
