URGENT NEED: HOW YOU CAN HELP FAMILIES AFFECTED BY COVID-19, SERVED BY AGAPE
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.” —Philippians 4:6 (ESV)
We urgently need your help to serve families during this time of crisis. As you can imagine, with kids home from school, meals unavailable and many adults off of work, this situation has resulted in unprecedented financial and emotional stress for families served by Agape.
Currently, the need is monetary. Families need financial assistance to cover the cost of:
- Cleaning supplies and disinfectant
- Medicine and medical fees
- Increased utilities since more people are at home more often
- Internet connectivity to ensure children can log in to virtual classroom lessons and teacher assignments so as not to get behind in school
Agape will remain mission-focused while addressing critical needs and we are doing so with confidence during these trying times. While we have temporarily closed our offices, the agency remains open to serve through our mission by connecting with families, partners and resources while maintaining social distancing practices. This temporary status is reviewed weekly and adjusted as needed for staff and families. Agape is thankful for your continuous thoughts and prayers during this time.
Here are some giving options you may consider to help a local family in need. Any amount is appreciated and all donations will go directly to serve families.
Donate online at https://agapemeanslove.org/donate/ or by texting agape2020 to 41444.
And when shopping online, you can also have critical items – baby formula, distilled water, disinfectant, and sanitary items – shipped to our office at 3160 Directors Row, Memphis, TN 38131 (deliveries made to the office will be received or picked up regularly).
Thank you for your partnership in support of some of our city’s most vulnerable families.
