Consider a Donation to LUM This Holiday Season

This year, considering replacing your Office Holiday Party “gift exchange” with a collection of “needed items” for LUM.

Whether it’s after school snacks for our students or cleaning supplies for the Emergency Shelter or toys & books for Jubilee Christmas or paper products for the Protein Food Pantry — each donation is helpful and appreciated. Make your holiday celebrations, at work and at home, more meaningful for your family, your guests and your colleagues by allowing them to give to local families in need.

LUM Jubilee Christmas is Saturday, December 14, and the Donation Center opens Monday, December 2 from 1-5 p.m. For a list of needed items, and the locations and open hours of the Donation Centers, click HERE.
