TOMORROW – the Happiest Day of the Year!
This Saturday (Dec. 8) is the happiest day of the year — Jubilee Christmas! At 27 different events across Tippecanoe County from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., 658 local families will receive Christmas assistance impacting over 1,820 local children. Jubilee Christmas is a special LUM program for families with children ages 12 and under. Participants will attend an event at one of our host sites and select new toys for their children. Each parent is assigned a host who will assist them in shopping and wrapping their gifts. Each family also receives a ham, a food gift card and homemade Christmas cookies to make their Christmas dinner more special.
DONATIONS – Jubilee Christmas relies on donations from churches, organizations and individuals. You can help by donating a cash gift of $50, $100, $250, $500, $1,000 or more to Jubilee Christmas. Your cash gift to Jubilee Christmas may be given in honor of a friend or family member — in lieu of a holiday gift. LUM will send a Holiday Card sharing that a donation has been made by you to Jubilee Christmas in their name. Donations of “needed items” are also welcome. See below.
