Agape Center’s ‘Warm Hearts, Happy Feet’ keep over 800 Families Warm This Winter
December was a Christmas Wonderland for over 800 families, comprised of nearly 2600 individuals at the Agape Center. The entire building was decorated by Santa’s elves and the gift shop was stocked to overflowing. Every client received gifts for themselves and their family members, along with a cookie and cup of hot cider. In addition, all children who were part of the Agape Angels program, ‘Warm Hearts, Happy Feet’, received either a warm coat, shoes or boots along with their stockings stuffed with toys, school supplies, or other treats specific to their ages.
“Our hearts are filled with thanks to the twenty-plus churches, businesses and individuals who were behind this outpouring of love to our community,” said Sue Lipscomb, executive director of the Agape Center. Those participating in the program included: Bedrock Community Church, Covenant Fellowship, Franklin Heights Baptist/Crosspointe, Dwelling Place, Eastlake Community Church, Flint Hill Baptist Church, Impact Church, J & J Fashions, Lakeside Brethren, The Little Gallery, Morgans Baptist Church, Palestine Baptist Church, Radford Baptist Church, Remax Lakefront Realty, Staunton Baptist Church and numerous individuals and volunteers of the Agape Center.
