—Agape Way Christmas 2018
Agape Way’s 5th annual Christmas in the Streets event is upon us! Last year, they served 200 meals and provided over 100 kids with gifts through their Christmas shop, all thanks to the generosity of joyful givers like Eastminster. They are collecting toys, gift cards, and financial donations that will be used for gifts to stock the shelves for their Christmas Shop this year. Last year, they had several tables full of gifts that were arranged by age group, along with a gift wrapping station where parents could have the gifts wrapped. The kids they serve range in age from small babies to teens (1-18). The older teens typically appreciate the gift cards while the younger kids love the toys, of course! This shop allows parents to get gifts for their kids that they would otherwise be unable to provide them with. Everything collected is given away at no cost to the families they serve. Eastminster, we will have a collection box set up for gift donations beginning November 25. If you want to donate a gift card, or make a financial donation, please bring them into the main office. Agape Way’s Christmas in the Streets event will be on Sunday, December 23 at 11AM at the corner of Donald L Hollowell Pkwy and Lowery Blvd. Please feel free to contact Ashley Mordecai (678-520-0497), or John Speiser with questions.
