Coming Soon: Facebook Auctions

The Agape Centre is so excited to offer a new and exciting way for locals to support our food bank! Now, you can bid on one-of-a-kind items on our Facebook page – and feel good about your purchase, knowing every dollar goes right back to Agape!

Visit our Facebook page to participate in our first-ever social media auction! The rules for this auction are listed below.

The Agape Centre uses Facebook auctions to fundraise for its services and operations, including the food bank and soup kitchen located at 40 Fifth Street West.

All auction items have been donated. To make a donation, please visit the facility at 40 Fifth Street West. Donations may be sold in the New For You thrift store.

Auctions will begin on Monday mornings and end on the following Sunday (six days after the start of the auction) at 8:00:59 p.m. EST.

Auction bids must increase by $1 increments. Starting bids will be posted with each photo.

Bids cannot be removed once they are placed, so bid cautiously.

Winning bidders will be notified on Sunday evenings, and must pick up their items at the Agape Centre’s New For You thrift store at 40 Fifth Street West. Payment options include cash, and if spending more than $6, debit and credit.

New For You hours are Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Thursday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Bidders who do not collect their items by Friday evening at 4 p.m. forfeit the item. The next successful bidder will be contacted. Delivery is not available.

All sales are final. Items cannot be exchanged and no money will be refunded. The Agape Centre cannot guarantee the quality of each item, but will test electric devices and assess items to the best of its ability. All items are sold “as is”.

Bidders who do not follow the rules will be given a warning.

The auction is not open to Agape Centre board members and employees.

Please message The Agape Centre on Facebook with any questions.

Empty Bowls: A new fundraiser for Agapè

The idea behind the event is that after sharing a meal, everyone will go home with a beautiful but empty pottery bowl – serving as a reminder of those in our community who go hungry. We are bringing the popular fundraiser to Cornwall for the first time.

Date: Sunday November 13
Location: upstairs at the Agapè Centre
Time: Three sittings: 11am, 12pm and 1pm
Tickets: $30 for sale at Scotiabank (690 Brookdale Ave., Cornwall)

Event-goers get to choose a unique handcrafter bowl, fill it with gourmet soup by local chefs paired with a fresh bun and apple crisp for dessert. After sitting and eating the meal with friends, each guest takes home their one-of-a-kind bowl, all for a $30 ticket.
