Our Share the Plate collection during July and August 2016 raised $473 for the Jefferson Recreation Center. Jeff Rec is located at the top of Monterey Street just a few blocks from the front door of our church and has long served the children of our neighborhood. We’ve also had a long-term commitment to support programs there with volunteers. Our donations funded field trips to local parks and recreation activities.
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. So far we have collected and distributed $24,028 to 29 justice partners. If you know of an organization or project doing good works contact <sharetheplate at alleghenyuu.org>.
