Each year St. Paul UMC hosts a "Back to School Jubilee" where we distribute free school supplies, backpacks, shoe vouchers and more. Families are pre-registered and on the day of the Jubilee come to the church to received their school supplies, but also to do crafts, get haircuts, and experience lots of Christ's love from all our volunteers. Last year we served 400 children and had over 80 volunteers of all ages who helped to make the Jubilee possible!
Help with This Year's Jubilee
Donate School Supplies
Visit the school bus in the sanctuary lobby on Sundays, or at the church office during the week, and take a few of the tags. Each tag represents a small part of the supplies the children need. You can drop off purchased supplies in the blue shopping cart in the lobby on Sunday or at the church office during the week.
Monetary donations for shoes
If you would like to make a monetary donation, you can place it in the offering plate. Be sure your offering is labelled "Back to School Jubilee." These donations will be used to fund the purchase of shoe vouchers so each child can get a pair of shoes that fit.
We have jobs for people of all ages and abilities. We need help distributing the school supplies on the day of the event, as well as help setting up and preparing. Each Tuesday and Thursday morning leading up to the Jubilee we need help sorting and doing inventory of the supplies. If you want to help, contact us.
