Jubilee Christmas — Making the Season Bright


Jubilee Christmas Helps to Make the Season Bright.

LUM Jubilee Christmas “Helps Make the Season Bright.” This past Saturday, close to 1,000
volunteers across the county hosted 684 families who were shopping for 1,913 children at 27 different host-sites engaging 31 churches and organizations — It’s LUM Jubilee Christmas!

Our Jubilee Christmas families are wonderful, loving parents — and our caring volunteers are excited to make these parents the “super-heroes” on Christmas morning. Each Jubilee Christmas family also received a ham, food card & homemade Christmas cookies to make Christmas dinner special too.

In addition to the new friendships forged, the highlight of the day is always the surprise visit from Santa Claus.
