LUM Jubilee Christmas is Here!

THIS Saturday – Jubilee Christmas Joy All Day Long

Celebrate the spirit of Jubilee Christmas this season THIS Saturday, December 9. All day long (8 a.m. to 6 p.m.), 28 Jubilee Christmas events across Tippecanoe County will bring joy and offer Christmas assistance to 646 local families, impacting nearly 1,790 children.

LUM understands the importance of allowing parents to be the “hero” on Christmas morning with their children. LUM Jubilee Christmas focuses on families with children aged 12 and younger. Each parent is paired with a host to assist them in shopping for new toys for their children and wrapping gifts. Additionally, each family receives a food gift card and homemade Christmas cookies, adding a special touch to their holiday dinner.

Here’s how you can join the celebration:

  • DONATE – Your cash gift makes a difference. Consider giving in honor of a friend, as an alternative to a traditional holiday gift. LUM will send a Holiday Card to the individual you are honoring.
  • VOLUNTEER – THIS Saturday, December 9, there are lots of volunteer shifts from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Join us to receive and sort toys, assist parents in shopping for their children, and help with the setup and cleanup. Great for groups.

Let’s come together to make Jubilee Christmas a memorable and joyful experience for our community!
