The Agape Center in Moneta reminded the public that it is providing approximately 900 families for Thanksgiving a holiday dinner.

The families are from Bedford to Rocky Mount. The Agape Center not only helps with food but helps with clothing, toys, furniture and appliances. Each family is assigned a mentor to talk with them concerning their physical, emotional and spiritual needs, and God’s love for them, Agape Center stated.

Due to COVID-19, each family will receive a Walmart gift card that is limited to the purchase of “turkey/ham/produce.” Dinner per family costs $20.

To sponsor families for Thanksgiving, make checks payable to Agape Center and mail to Agape Center, P.O. Box 573, Moneta, Va. 24121, or donate online at
