Jubilee Furniture–a piece of the back story of helping transform lives!

I was without a book to read earlier this week (something which rarely happens) and I asked my daughter if she had anything good I could borrow. “How about Anne of Green Gables?” floated her voice from her room. Though Abby’s middle name, Anne, is in honor of Anne Shirley the heroine from L.M. Montgomery’s book – I’ve never read it. Instead I fell in love with Anne from watching the film aired on PBS in 1985.

The next day Abby asked how I was liking the book and I enthusiastically responded – “I love it”!  “That’s not surprising,” she answered, “the story includes a plucky orphan.  Who wouldn’t love a book with a plucky orphan?”  I had to laugh at the word “plucky,” but Abby nailed it. I love reading about courageous Anne – who overcomes a very tough start to her life with imagination and ongoing amazement at the beauty of the world and the people in it – and think she’s a character worth admiring. “But really, Marilla, one can’t stay sad very long in such an interesting world, can one?”

Thankfully, plucky – courageous – people aren’t just fictional. Nicole – one of the single moms in our Jubilee Village program – shares her story of overcoming odds and working hard to create a life for herself and her son, Asher, here.

The proceeds of everything we sell at Jubilee Furniture – minus our expenses – are helping to support Nicole, Asher and others through the programs and services offered through Outreach Community Ministries.  The fact that you also go home with some amazing furniture in the deal is almost too good to be true!

But true it is.  Let’s take a look at some of the things you’ll find at Jubilee Furniture today (Friday) from 1 to 8 and tomorrow (Saturday) from 9 to 4:

this rosewood set is the same one we had in the store several months ago – it was too big for the customer’s space – but came back with more wear so the prices reflects that – $165 gets you the table, 2 leaves, table pads, six chairs and 12 chair cushions (two different sets).  Such a deal!
