1,742 Local Children | 620 Families | 29 Events
This year Jubilee Christmas will serve more than 620 local families impacting 1,742 children. Parents will visit one of 29 host sites to get gifts and food items to make Christmas possible for their children. Host sites will have “walk-through” or “limited in-person” events with strict precautions in place to keep everyone safe and healthy.
VOLUNTEER elves are needed to staff our Donation Center (Nov. 29 – Dec. 7) and to assist with Jubilee Christmas part 2 on Saturday, December 11. This is a great opportunity to host a family and assist them in shopping for their children. Please SHARE this with others.
DONATIONS are appreciated for Jubilee Christmas from churches, organizations and individuals, and help make the program a success. 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.
