Jubilee Christmas is a special LUM (Lafayette Urban Ministry) program for families with children. Families who participate in Jubilee Christmas are invited to a host site and are able to select new toys for their children ages 12 and younger. Families also receive other items to make their Christmas even more special. On Saturday, December 10, 10:00-12:00, Riverside will be hosting Jubilee Christmas. Our goal is to provide Christmas toys, hygiene items, winter wear, games, blankets and baked treats for the 10 families chosen for Riverside.
There are several ways that you can be involved: setting up for the event, hosting a family or donating toys, baked goods or money. Currently we are looking for volunteers 1)to help set up the evening of Friday, December 9th (sign up below) and 2)to help host families on Saturday, December 10th. You can sign up below. You will be contacted after signing up with more information.
There is a board set up in the back of the sanctuary with tags for toys (1 tag = 1 toy). Jubilee Christmas wants each child to have 4 new (not used) toys. Some of the tags have specific requests. There are also tags for 12 dozen homemade or store bought baked goods. If you are not attending in person, but would like to participate in purchasing a toy or donating some baked goods, contact the church office ([email protected] or 765.463.4600) to claim a tag. Toys are due back to Riverside by Sunday, December 4th. Baked goods can be dropped off at the church by Friday, December 9th no later than 4:00 p.m.
If you would like to donate financially to help in purchasing the gift cards for Christmas meat and gift cards for teens, please make out a check to Riverside Covenant Church and put “Jubilee Christmas” in the memo and drop by the church office or mail to 1850 Woodland Ave, West Lafayette, IN, 47906, or give online by choosing the Misc. fund and putting Jubilee Christmas in the description. A donation of $70 will help support 1 family.
