Thank you for wanting to bless a child or family this Christmas season! Details for current giving opportunities are listed below.

Women & Children in the Morning Star Sanctuary
Domestic Violence Shelter

Several women and their children will spend the holidays in our emergency domestic violence shelter. We are seeking donations of items they both need and want, which can be found on this wishlist. The list includes items of all price ranges with the desired quantity and age range specified to provide a special Christmas to each program participant. (Bigger-ticket items will be added in late December that are child-specific, so we can have a better idea of who will be in shelter on Christmas day.) Items purchased from this list will be shipped directly to AGAPE. To shop the wishlist, please click here. (Don't forget to shop using AmazonSmile, and AGAPE will receive a portion of the purchase price!) 

In addition to providing gifts for shelter participants, we are also planning to host special Christmas activities in the shelter to make the holidays more festive. If you'd like to donate supplies needed for those activities, more information is listed below. We would suggest planning for 12 participants for each activity. If you have any questions, please contact us.

Children in an AGAPE Foster Home

We are looking for sponsors for 80+ children in our foster care program. This is a $200-$250 commitment per child, and sponsors can either fulfill the child's wishlist or make a financial contribution for us to purchase their gifts. After signing up, you will receive an email with the child's wishlist. To sign up as a sponsor, please click here.
Update: All of the children have been sponsored! Thank you! If you would still like to donate, we are accepting giftcards (Walmart, Target, etc.) to fill in gifts for children who come into our care between now and Christmas. 


If you have any questions, please contact us.
