GIVE HELP!
Giving feels good! Meeting the basic needs of our neighbors feels best of all. Warren County is a great place to live because this community takes care of each other. There are many easy ways to support AGAPE!
Give food -- Much of the food we share comes from donations from individuals and groups in the community. Non-perishable food and personal care donations are accepted at our food pantry 5 days a week.
Make a monetary donation -- Individual donors make up the bulk of AGAPE's monetary support. As the needs in our area continue to grow, we need donor support more than ever.
Shop / Donate to AGAPE Thrift -- Need new-to-you stuff or things to upcycle? All proceeds from sales at AGAPE Thrift go back to fund our food pantry. Have gently used items? Donate them to AGAPE Thrift! Call us first to find out donation hours and guidelines on what we can and cannot accept as donations.
Volunteer -- Time is a precious gift. Volunteers sharing their time and their talents are integral to AGAPE's work. With a small full-time staff, we rely heavily on volunteers to accomplish our mission, especially working directly with our clients to share groceries from the food pantry and run our thrift store.
