Jubilee Store 2021
Drive-Through Event, November 20 & 21
As we continue to navigate the pandemic, many families, including those in the Charlotte Family Housing program, are struggling and looking for hope. You can help provide these needy families, and especially their children, with hope by supporting the annual Jubilee Store. Last year, we helped over 100 families and more than 200 children have a happier holiday season!
We are currently in need of donations to go toward this effort and would love your financial support to make the Jubilee Store a success this year.
You can donate via Realm (https://onrealm.org/StJohnsBaptistC/-/form/give/now) or by check made out to SJBC with “Jubilee Store” in the memo field. Text “SJGIVE” to 73256 to give using your mobile device.
Here is a breakdown of how your donations can help:
- $25 – gift wrap supplies for one family
- $50 – holiday meal for one family
- $100 – gifts for two children
This year, Jubilee store will continue as a drive-through event. Instead of “shopping” inside our church, families will drive through our parking lot and purchase gift cards at a reduced rate to buy gifts for their children.
They will also receive food from Bojangles, a Food Lion gift card for a holiday meal, a basket with holiday goodies, and supplies for wrapping gifts. As an added bonus, they can also stop to have a Christmas photo taken by a professional photographer.
Our parking lot will be decorated with Christmas inflatables and volunteers will be dressed up to spread Christmas love and cheer to the families as they drive around the building to collect their goodies.
If you would like to be a part of this event, volunteers will be needed to run gift baskets to cars, direct traffic, and help with check-in – all very easy things! Please note, volunteers must be 18 years old and undergo a background check (quick and easy). Volunteers will be on their feet for most of their shift. The links to sign up are below:
We are partnering with Myers Park Presbyterian, Christ Episcopal Church, and Charlotte Family Housing to make Jubilee Store happen.
If you have any additional questions, please feel free to reach out to Jacquelyn McAbee or Allison Benfield. Thank you!
