AGAPE is open to accept drop-off donations during business hours, from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM, Monday, Tuesday and Friday and 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM Thursday only.

Food Donations

You can join AGAPE’s efforts to alleviate hunger in our community by donating food. The need is great; AGAPE is currently serving over 700 families or households each month. All donated items are distributed to families facing food hardships via our weekly DailyBread meal, supplemental emergency food boxes and/or in partnership with the Columbia County Food Bank. Needed donations include spaghetti sauce, pasta, peanut butter, jelly, canned fruit, canned meats, boxed meals, side dish items and condiments (ketchup, mustard, etc.). We can also accept donations of fresh and frozen produce, packaged meats and dairy products, however, due to limited space, please contact us at (570) 317-2210 or donate@agape-pa.org for prior arrangements.

Organize a Food or Food and Fund Drive

Drives for food are always needed. Many groups have made food drives a successful service project. A food and/or a food and fund drive is ideal for faith communities, neighborhoods, businesses, service clubs, schools, scouts, sports teams, and any group of dedicated people who want to do something to help fight hunger in our community. Be creative! The AGAPE DailyBread Team is available to assist you with ideas for conducting and promoting your food drive. In most instances, AGAPE can supply collection boxes, signage and flyers for you to use; pick-ups and drop-offs should be arranged with advanced notice. To conduct a food drive contact us at (570) 317-2210 or donate@agape-pa.org.

“Going Green” With AGAPE

“When you reap the harvest of our land, you shall not reap your field right up to its edge, neither shall you gather the gleanings after your harvest. And you shall not strip your vine-yard bare, neither shall you gather the fallen grapes of your vine-yard...”

~Leviticus 19:9-10

Leviticus calls us to be good stewards of what the Lord has given us. Given the current condition of our earth, going green is more important than ever. By going green we can all take part in preserving our earth and save money at the same time. AGAPE has partnered with several recycling programs that not only help our environment, but also financially benefit AGAPE. Proceeds from these programs cover most of the expenses for our StoreMore program. You can also participate by donating items that support these “Going Green” programs.

ShoeBox Recycling

“You have the unlimited power to change as many lives as you can reach by recycling your gently used shoes.”

~ShoeBox Recycling Site

ShoeBox Recycling

Every pair of shoes donated to AGAPE will either be distributed to clients throughout our local community via our monthly clothing giveaways or will be passed along to our partners at ShoeBox Recycling. Your shoes will become someone else’s very first pair, very special pair, or a much needed pair.

Please note, all shoes need to be in wearable condition. No wet or mildew pairs, used flip flops (sandals are okay), fuzzy slippers, ice skates, roller blades or single shoes.


Planet Green Recycling

Planet Green Recycling

There are three ways you can help AGAPE in its partnership with Planet Green.

  1. Subscribe –AGAPE receives a $1 donation for every person that subscribes to Planet Green at http://www.planetgreenrecycle.com/AGAPE
  2. Recycle – Planet Green recycles ink cartridges, cell phones, video games, and other small electronics and donates cash to AGAPE. Planet Green provides postage paid mailing labels for you to send items directly from your own home or you may drop them off at AGAPE for shipment.
  3. Buy Recycled – Planet Green also sells high-quality remanufactured ink cartridges. As a purchaser, you save up to 70% buying high quality remanufactured inkjet cartridges versus the original brand and AGAPE receives a 15% donation of every inkjet cartridge you purchase through our link.
  4. Old Computers – Do you have an old computer that has been collecting dust and are not sure how to dispose of it? Donate your computer towers and laptops to the Agape Center. In case you are concerned about your old information, please know we will wipe your old computer drive with military grade, triple clean software to prevent access to any data.

Scrap Metal

Sometimes we get broken metal items. Rather than just throwing these items in the landfill, AGAPE collects these items and drops them off at a metal scrap yard for a nominal profit. Over the past year, enough scrap metal was recycled to help fund our second floor renovations. Due to limited space, if you are interested in donating any metal items, please contact us at (570) 317-2210 or donate@agape-pa.org, for prior arrangements.
