Packing Instructions and Project AGAPE/UMCOR Drop-Off Locations

  • Please pack all items in the smallest box that is appropriate.  Recommended box size is 16” X 12” X 12” since boxes of that size can be reused as part of a shipment.
  • List the contents on the outside of the box.
  • Also, pack the boxes as full and tight as possible.  That prevents boxes from being crushed as they are stacked in the warehouse awaiting the sorting process.
  • If at all possible, avoid using plastic bags, since they are easily torn and do not stack well on pallets.

The following are the dates that Project Agape will receive donations at your churches at the times specified on the conference website. Thank you for supporting the mission's ministry of the WNCC. Cecil Donahue, Board Member and Collections coordinator for Project Agape.
