Jubilee is a day filled with fun, hope and encouragement. Through donations from churches, individuals, corporations, and O2H (you), have brought blessings of food, merchandise, services, all in a fun, festive atmosphere. It’s all FREE!
The Mission of Jubilee is to give away more than just stuff. The true mission of Jubilee is to serve God by giving generously, compassionately and unconditionally to people in order to demonstrate the hope and love that can only come through Jesus. This is the ninth consecutive year for giving away thousands of dollars of goods and services.
This year there were 1815 registered attendees with 24 area churches contributing. 60 + Vision screenings were given away (mobile clinic), 11 attendees had dental treatment (free) in a mobile clinic, 1600+ bottles of laundry soap distributed, thousands of pieces of clothing, baby items, and household items given away. 1728 loaves of bread were served and over 925 families were taking part. 1,700 bags of groceries were given away along with 65 haircuts, 140 family portraits and all with live clowns, music, dance acts, pizza and more.
To serve this many people, 470 volunteers show up to help distribute the goods and services, all in Jesus’ name. Each family receives a certificate good for 7 FREE blessings. These blessings include: a bag of groceries, a choice of services (haircut, photo session, etc.) and many new or gently used items such a clothing, toys and household merchandise. All this while items are being distributed there is food, treats, live music, bouncy houses and entertainment. Truly the people who attend call this their own fair for the poor!
