Jubilee Christmas – Donations

Jubilee Christmas relies on donations from churches, organizations and individuals for a successful Jubilee Christmas.

You can help by donating a cash gift of $50, $100, $250, $500, $1,000 or more to Jubilee Christmas. Your cash gift to Jubilee Christmas may be given in honor of a friend or family member — in lieu of a holiday gift.
