Share the Plate supports Gwen’s Girls

Posted on May 9, 2019 in News, Social Justice Activities

During March and April 2019 we collected $640 for our North Side neighbor and Alternative Spring Break partner Gwen’s Girls, which works to empower girls and young women to have productive lives through holistic, gender-specific programs, education and experiences, and offers a safe space where girls and young women can form relationships, build self-esteem, and gain resiliency.

Allegheny’s Share the Plate program began in 2010 and directs half of our Sunday plate collection to justice partners doing important work in the communities of Pittsburgh’s North Side and beyond. To date we have collected and disbursed $35,139 to 45 justice partners. If you know of an organization or project doing good works contact <sharetheplate at alleghenyuu.org>.
