Volunteer Opportunities—LUM Immigration Clinic—Citizenship Classes

LUM Immigration Clinic is seeking additional volunteers to help pass out materials, engage students regarding discussion topics, and review vocabulary & civics questions in preparation for the naturalization interview. LUM is also seeking individuals/groups who might be willing to interact with students to provide refreshments during one or more of the classes. This is a great opportunity for church or civic groups to learn more about the naturalization process and to meet future citizens. Finally volunteers are needed to teach the next five-week session of classes which is tentatively scheduled to begin in October 2015. If interested you’re encouraged to attend and observe one of the August-September classes.


Please call or email Susan Brouillette if you have any questions or would like more information about the classes or any of the volunteer opportunities (765-423.2691 | sbroullette@lumserve.org).


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.
