Share the Plate Partnerships
What is Share the Plate?
UUCY shares half of all our donation plates with a local community organization, what we call Share the Plate (STP). Our Share the Plate partners are identified through input from the Congregation and decided upon by the UUCY Social Justice Committee. We use the STP to honor our commitment to service to our local community through these generous donations to local partners.
Our Share the Plate Partner for the month of September is Planned Parenthood. Their mission is to ensure that all people have access to the care and resources they need to make informed decisions about their bodies, their lives, and their futures. Founded in 1916, Planned Parenthood is a trusted health care provider, educator, and passionate advocate here in the U.S. as well as a strong partner to health and rights organizations around the world. Each year, Planned Parenthood delivers vital sexual and reproductive health care, sex education, and information to millions of people. (From https://www.plannedparenthood.org/about-us)
