The 38th annual Lafayette Urban Ministry Jubilee Christmas program took place this past Saturday (December 8) at 27 different events throughout Lafayette/West Lafayette. Thirty churches along with Sigma Chi Fraternity at Purdue, numerous individuals, businesses and clubs provided gifts of new toys, books, food and clothing, to parents from 640 local households, impacting 1,831 local children .

Jubilee Christmas is designed to let mom and dad be the heroes, rather than providing gifts directly to children at a large party or having volunteers deliver toys directly to the home. Jubilee Christmas strengthens families by supporting the important role of parents at Christmas time.
