Couple Donates $10,000 to Feed Local Families

Jubilee Christmas Families Receive Restaurant Gift Card

A local couple, who wish to remain anonymous, made a donation to LUM of $10,000 to feed local families who are struggling. They met with Wes Tillett, LUM executive director, to make sure that their donation would be distributed soon, go to local families in need and direct these families to a place in town to eat. The donor shared that, 

“It’s Christmas time, the happiest time of the year 
— and we wanted help in some way.” 

As a result, this Saturday each of the 525 families registered for Jubilee Christmas will be receiving, in addition to toys for their children, a $15-$20 gift certificate to this couple’s favorite restaurant — Lafayette Brewing Co. Their gift will not only feed 525 families with 1,500 children but will also support a family-owned & operated, downtown business. During their visit with Wes, the couple kept coming back to the passage, 

“When did we see you hungry?” 

(Matthew 25:31-46).

Such a powerful, generous, thoughtful gift from an amazingly supportive local couple. Join us in thanking them. 

{Please note: the LBC gift certificates may be used for carry-out or dine-in, for food & nonalcoholic beverages only, and are redeemable for up to one year. Plus, kids eat free on Sundays.}
