Our Share the Plate collection during September and October 2017 raised $721 for Northside Common Ministries, which offers vital support and resources to neighbors in need including the Northside Community Food Pantry and the Pleasant Valley Men’s Shelter. In November, Allegheny UU Church was recognized as NCM’s “Congregation of the Year” for our efforts toward social justice, working with immigrant communities, food pantry collections, and Share the Plate collections.
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 distributed $28,794 to 36 justice partners. If you know of an organization or project doing good works contact <sharetheplate at alleghenyuu.org>.
