During the COVID-19 pandemic, Jubilee Ministries, in partnership with the Christian Chamber of Commerce of Western Pennsylvania (CCCWP) began serving the City of New Castle through a number of initiatives.
Through the “ Make Your Day Project” we provided every resident in our 8 local nursing homes and every nurses station in our local hospital with a fresh bouquet of flowers. Once completed, we had delivered over 800 bouquets. We honored the local Fire and Police Departments for their service on the front lines with gift cards to local restaurants and we served breakfast to our EMS providers.
Through the “ Build The Family Project”, we gifted 420 families in our local housing projects with board games as a way to encourage families to spend quality time together during this time of quarantine.
The N.O.W Project, in conjunction with the CCCWP specifically focuses on providing food to the Western Pennsylvania and Eastern Ohio communities. In 2020, we distributed over 3.9 million pounds (over 175,000 boxes with a retail value of over $10 million dollars) of food, produce and dairy monthly serving over 3,000 families in our region. This initiative will continue on a regular basis as an outreach initiative to bless our community.
