What is JUBILEE? It's a one-day celebration to honor members in our community who are in need with a day filled with fun, hope and encouragement. Through donations a food, clothing, products and services from churches and businesses, JUBILEE's goal is to provide much-needed relief to people who need help meeting some of life's most basic necessities. JUBILEE is a festive celebration complete with live music, food, treats, children's entertainment and more! JUBILEE is all done in the name of Jesus and it's all FREE!
Jubilee 2011 took place on Saturday, September 17 and was a huge, wonderfully blessed event! Thank you to all the many volunteers and contributors for your time and support. To God be the Glory!

Feedback from 2010 Event: “I am the Assistant Program Director for a women’s shelter. We serve 46 women and children who are survivors of domestic violence. On behalf of the women and children I wanted to thank you for Jubilee 2010. Our residents had so much fun and received many household items that they might never have received otherwise. The children were able to be children at this event which is something that was taken away from them with the violence they have witnessed. For that one Saturday, the women and children were not thinking about how poor they were or how much stuff they had to do without, but they were thinking about how nice people really were and how blessed they were to be able to go to the Jubilee. You helped both the women and children start to heal emotionally and spiritually from the tragic homes they came from. Again Thank You for everything.”
