Agape: United in Peace and Love
Virtual Event to Benefit the Metropolis of San Francisco Philoptochos Kids ‘n’ Cancer Ministry
His Eminence Metropolitan Gerasimos and the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of San Francisco Philoptochos cordially invite you to attend a virtual celebration, Agape: United in Peace and Love to benefit the Kids ‘n’ Cancer Ministry. This online event will be held on Sunday, April 11, 2021 from 2:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. PST.
The children and their families served by the Metropolis Philoptochos through Camp Agape have come to rely upon our love and generosity. While they may be the grateful participants in this ministry, the true blessings come back to us – for the opportunity to witness the faith, courage and fortitude of these survivors and thrivers!
The current conditions make it impossible to hold an in-person camp, but the need still exists. Even now we continue to re-imagine Camp Agape and how we can provide a fun, adventurous, unique and Agape-filled experience. These kids have been through a lot – more than many of us have endured as adults. That is why your support is so important.
There will be Camp Agape care packages filled with special items from their wish lists. There are families who have especially struggled during the pandemic that may need help with medical expenses. And sadly, there are those whose young souls will be called to the Lord, and we make sure they receive a dignified funeral.
With two camps in California, one in Arizona, and one in Oregon, the need is great. Can we count on you to give your heart to a child?
There is no cost to attend, however advance registration is required to receive the Zoom login
information. Register at: www.sfphiloptochos.org or by calling 415-431-2600. During this event you will be taken on a virtual tour of all four camps, meet some of the children and their families that are the recipients of your generosity, and be greeted by His Eminence Metropolitan Gerasimos who will offer an Archpastoral message. Special entertainment will also be featured which you won’t want to miss!
Donations will be accepted LIVE during the event, or you may make a secure donation at www.sfphiloptochos.org today!
