Holiday Office Party IDEA — Support LUM this Christmas

As the weather gets colder and the holidays get closer, many of you may be starting to plan your annual Holiday Office Party.

This year instead of doing a staff “gift exchange” at your Holiday Office Party — encourage your office staff to buy for LUM. Your office mates may purchase toys for Jubilee Christmas, books and school suppies for Achieve! and the LUM After School Program, Food for the St. John’s/LUM Food Pantry or Toiletries for the Shelter. Rather than buying “gag’ gifts for each other — focus on the needy families in our local community.

Cash donations are always welcome and needed too. Donate Online.

Jubilee Christmas needs donations by Tuesday, December 4, 2012: 

  • New, unwrapped toys and clothing, suitable for ages: new born-12.
  • Gift wrapping materials: paper, ribbon, bows, and tape.

Small quantities, gift cards, and cash donations may be delivered to: LUM’s office at 420 N. 4th Street, 8:30-4:30 M-F.

Email Ron Smith at rsmith@lafayetteurbanministry.org with questions or to arrange large deliveries.  Cash contributions are especially needed for expenses. You may also give online by clicking HERE.
