Jubilee Furniture weekly update post for Thursday, November 26, 2015

Boring – but necessary – store hours information:

Jubilee Furniture is CLOSED today but will be

OPEN tomorrow (Friday) from 1 to 8 and Saturday from 9 to 4

I am always grateful and appreciative of all Jubilee Furniture customers, donors, volunteers and staff – but am especially thankful to our customers when we have Olga’s afghans for sale each Thanksgiving.

Why? Because your care for an area senior reminds me of our very basic human connection which unites us all and I love it – and love you for being so gracious, kind and compassionate.

Not sure what I’m talking about? Let me explain.

Most of you are aware the proceeds of what we sell at Jubilee Furniture help support the programs and services offered through Outreach Community Ministries.

One of my favorite programs is called “Friendly Visitors” and matches a senior in the area (often low-income with little or no family around to help) with a volunteer who commits to regularly checking in and visiting.

About six years ago one of our friendly visitors – Henny – approached me about Olga, one of the seniors in the program.  Olga loves to crochet.  It’s also hugely beneficial in that it keeps her busy and occupied during the long cold months each year.  Yet the cost of yarn was becoming too much for Olga and she had run out of friends to give the finished product to.  Would Jubilee Furniture allow Olga’s afghans to be displayed – and sold – in the store? My answer?  Absolutely.

Even though Olga is slowing down – we have 11 (10 shown here) beautiful afghans for sale priced between $30 and $45 (depending on size – cash or check only, please) – her creations continue to be absolutely gorgeous! Please know 100% of the money for each afghan goes directly to Olga.
