Agape’s 2018 Holiday Gift Store
Wednesday, December 12 and Thursday, December 13th
2210 Marietta Blvd NW Atlanta, GA 30318
Heather was a single mother of four. When she called Agape in December 2017, she had recently lost her job and was caring for her terminally ill father. She felt helpless at a time that is usually filled with cheer. Life’s challenges left her with little resources to provide for her children during the holiday season. She did not know how she would bring holiday cheer to her family while maintaining basic living expenses, but her community helped! Thanks to generous donations and toy contributions, from kind friends like you, Agape hosted our annual Holiday Gift Store. Heather was able to shop for her children and select 3 new toys for each of them and leave with the gifts wrapped. She was so grateful to receive the help she needed at one of her lowest points in life.
We want to collect and distribute over 1,500 toys for families in need this year. The Agape Holiday Gift Store provides gifts for over 400 children from under-served families each year. Our gymnasium will transform into a winter wonderland store staffed by volunteers for two days of “shopping”, gift wrapping, holiday music, cheer and most of all hope.
