Project AGAPE Collection

Project AGAPE Collection

Our Conference has supported vulnerable persons in Armenia for over 25 years.  Although our Mission Team has been engaged in many programs that are teaching self-improvement and sustainability, there are times in which we are called upon to help with humanitarian relief.

After the most recent military conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan, Project Agape was forced to shut down its operations in the town of Berdzor.  Many of the families that Project Agape has helped over the years were forced to abandon their property at the same time.

While a new place for ministry is being established in Armenia, Project Agape is now turning our attention to helping internally displaced persons who are trying to survive in a bitter cold environment.  Fortunately, Project Agape workers in Berdzor were able to salvage materials from the former warehouse which are being distributed to persons in need.

Our Conference and the Western NC Conference have been asked to help our friends in Armenia by sending additional supplies at the end of March 2021. These are items that are very hard to find in the mountainous areas of Eastern Armenia.

Donated items should be dropped in the Welcome Center by March 19.  Following is a list of items we are collecting:

  • New bed linens, pillows, and blankets
  • New or like-new children’s clothing (up to age 16)
  • New shoes (old shoes cannot be shipped)

To make a monetary donation, make checks payable to Front Street UMC with "Project AGAPE" in the memoline and mail to the church office, or give online hereDonations will be used to buy other supplies in Armenia.
