Thanks to everyone who donated to or volunteered at the Jubilee Store on December 9-10, 2016!
The Jubilee Store offers families of Charlotte Family Housing an empowering, hopeful, dignified way of purchasing holiday gifts for their families. Through the opportunity provided by the Jubilee Store, families can actively engage in budgeting for, selecting, and purchasing gifts for their family members.
During the 2016 Jubilee Store, 95 families shopped and purchased new, donated gifts at 30% of the retail price. Over 160 volunteers came together to make the store a smooth success by crafting with children, welcoming volunteers, assisting shoppers, cashing/checking out shoppers, serving food, gift wrapping, setting up, decorating, and tearing down the store. A big thank you to Myers Park United Methodist Church, Myers Park Presbyterian Church, and Christ Episcopal Church for hosting the Store and empowering our families. Thank you to Kids R Kids – The Academy at Blakeney and countless others for their donations of toys and gifts, and for their hours of service to the store.
