St. Elizabeth’s Jubilee Center

Saint Elizabeth’s Jubilee Center


Saint Elizabeth’s Jubilee Center is a welcoming, no-barrier program of distribution of non-food essentials. The Center specifically distributes items not covered under the federal food stamp program, such as clothing, diapers, personal hygiene products, cleaning supplies and paper products.

St. Alban’s hosts the Jubilee Center on nine Tuesdays annually. Distribution takes place from 8:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. in the parish hall of the Cathedral of St. Luke in Portland.

There is still an ongoing need for other warm clothing, sweaters, socks, etc., and household items. Your donations of time, material and resources are what keep the Jubilee Center going!

Another ongoing need is for dictionaries, not only French/English, Spanish/English, but also Portuguese/English (people from all those former Belgium colonies) and Arabic/English. It is really very moving to meet adults so eager to learn a new language, and it would be wonderful if we could help them in their effort. Consider a donation of money so that fresh and up to date dictionaries could be ordered (there is a very useful Arabic one with pictures that is popular).
