Liberty University’s Alpha Lambda Delta Honor Society (ALD) is hosting the Jubilee Center Easter Outreach, Wednesday, April 9 at 3-5:30 p.m. with an evening of activities and biblical teaching focused on reaching Lynchburg’s youth.
According to its website, the Jubilee Family Development Center was created to provide academic and social programs for at-risk youth in Lynchburg. Children and their families are offered development services that foster social growth and stability of families.
The members of ALD serve the community throughout the year, and according to ALD’s Facebook page, the Easter outreach is one of its upcoming events. The day will include an Easter egg hunt, interactive gospel presentation and a craft for the kids.
“The Jubilee Center always leaves our officers encouraged,” Bessie Grayson, ALD administrative advisor, said. “They get the attention of the students with a craft and then get to share the story of Christ and Easter with them. … It’s really great.”
Current ALD member Kimberly Jamison has participated in ALD activities in the past and recognizes the importance of being a part of such an active club.
“I love ALD, because they have events that involve the entire community happening throughout the year,” Jamison said. “… Reaching out to the youth of Lynchburg is so exciting, and being in ALD means I can be a part of that.”
Along with the Jubilee Center Easter Outreach, ALD has also coordinated other events to get more involved with the youth of Lynchburg.
ALD held its annual Teddy Bear Drive, March 20, in which teddy bears and coloring books were collected from students and ALD members and were donated to the Pediatric Ward of Lynchburg General Hospital.
“The vision behind the Teddy Bear Drive is to be a service and support to our community and sharing with the young ones and their families being cared for at the Pediatric Ward,” Grayson said. “… We have had a lot of feedback from families sharing how the teddy bears helped their child.” Grayson said.
