Jingle & Gingerbread fundraiser held

November 11 – December 12, 2020 @ Online

The third annual Jingle & Gingerbread charity fundraiser, hosted by The Junior League of Kingsport, is taking place online and on-the-go over the next several weeks. Gingerbread house kits, which are freshly made locally, are available for presale now at www.jlkingsport.org. Orders will be taken through the end of November, and patrons will have the opportunity to pick them up on Saturday, Nov. 28 and Saturday, Dec. 12 from 1-8 p.m. at JLK Headquarters located at 418 Shelby Street, Kingsport TN, 37660.

The kits include everything you need to build the house and decorate it. “This year we are doing things as a drive-through event due to COVID-19, but we promise there is still fun to be had and memories to be made,” said event chair Andrea Harbin. A contest online offers children the opportunity to showcase their gingerbread house building and decorating skills, while competing for fun prizes.

Proceeds from this event benefit the JLK Community Outreach programs and the Community Grants Program, for which this year’s recipient is YWCAres. “A portion of the proceeds from Jingle & Gingerbread will benefit YWCAres, a local non-profit organization that fills a gap in supporting victims of crime 24/7. The YWCAres and Junior League of Kingsport are aligned in their commitment to protect, support, and encourage women and children of Kingsport and Sullivan County.” Harbin continued.

Along with the festive gingerbread houses, patrons can pick up other gifts at www.jlkingsport.org as well, including “Official Cookie Taster” t-shirts, children’s books and cookbooks. Kits can be picked up at the two drive-through events (Nov. 28 and Dec. 12), or delivery services can be arranged for an additional charge. J
