Jubilee Christmas – Festive & Heartwarming
Thanks to All Donors, Volunteers & Hosts Sites
LUM Jubilee Christmas 2022 was festive, heartwarming, and a brilliant success. This past Saturday at 29 different sites, 665 households participated in Jubilee Christmas, impacting 1,882 children. It is a massive undertaking, engaging close to 1,200 volunteers, supported by donors giving more than $250,000 worth of gifts, food, clothes, and books. Jubilee Christmas is a tremendous community-wide effort.
LUM Jubilee Christmas also provides a significant boost to the local retail economy. Gifts and food are purchased locally, and $35,000 in gift cards are redeemed locally. As a result of this program, LUM will see fewer clients in January and February requesting emergency rent and utility assistance in the Financial Assistance Program.
Special thanks to Josh Prokopy, the LUM Jubilee Christmas director, and all of the JC Host Site coordinators, host sites & volunteers. (For a complete list of 2022 JC Host Sites, click HERE.) If you participated or made a donation this year, THANK YOU! And, Merry Christmas!
