CORNWALL, Ontario - Cornwall's Kinsmen are the latest to take up the One Bag Challenge for the Agapé Centre.

The Agapé Centre is challenging the public to donate one bag to help them help the community throughout the summer.

Summer is the most challenging time for the Agapé Centre as they receive the least amount of donations, but still have to meet the same demand for their services.

The idea is to donate one bag of groceries to the Agapé Centre between now and the end of August. Participants are encouraged to challenge five of their friends to also take up the One Bag Challenge.

The Cornwall Kinsmen arrived with not just one bag, but an entire shopping cart of donations to the Agapé Centre.

The Cornwall Kinsmen then challenged the other services clubs in town to take up the challenge themselves.
