Your Contributions at Work! …Six Agencies Selected for “One Time” Gifts
Earlier this year, Jubilee! gave $7,500 to six non-profits in the Asheville Area to support their work. These include Asheville Reiki Connection, Bounty & Soul, CarePartners Foundation, Creation Carolina, Helios Warriors and One Youth at a Time.
Carolyn Ashworth from CarePartners wrote in a letter of appreciation, ”CarePartners Pediatric Private Duty program offers home-based care for medically fragile children. Nurses provide skilled care in patient homes for children dealing with serious chronic and sometimes terminal illnesses. Thanks to this program, these children are able to get the equipment and care they need to remain in their homes, with their families, rather than in the hospital. Truly, for these children and their families, the benefit of this service is immeasurable. Thanks!”

Stay Well – Build Your Immune Health …Monday, November 2nd, 6:30—8 pm
Whether or not you get a flu shot, there are several natural approaches to keep you healthy this flu season. Jackie Dobrinska will discuss how to build a strong immune system with alternative therapies. And, discover simple kitchen and backyard remedies to use if a cold, flu or infection begins. We will cover the wise progression of health, lifestyle considerations, diet and herbal supports. Sponsored by the Wellness Team.

Have You Ever Seen the Energy of Love? …Sunday, November 15th at 2 pm   
Join the Spiritual Journey Team for the exciting film:  Man of Light, Manifestation of Miracles, the incredible, true story and documentary film about Mauricio Panisett, the Brazilian Healer.   When he did his healing work, bright, visible lights flashed from his body. Mauricio showed us what love actually looks like as it flows from one person to another. Wayne Dyer described him as “the most unique individual I have ever met…”  Come see the film and be inspired and uplifted as you support the Compassion Fund with your donations.
