Jubilee Christmas Helps to Make the Season Bright.
More than a thousand volunteers across the county hosted 681 families who were shopping for
over 1,900 children at 27 different host-sites engaging 32 churches and organizations — It’s LUM Jubilee Christmas!
Jubilee Christmas events are joyful celebrations. Our Jubilee Christmas families are wonderful, loving parents — and our caring volunteers are excited to make these parents the “super-heroes” on Christmas morning. LUM Jubilee Christmas is truly a community effort — that helps making the season bright.
Each Jubilee Christmas family also received a ham, food card & homemade Christmas cookies to make Christmas dinner special too. The highlight of the day was a surprise visit from Santa Claus.
