During July and August we collected $777 for Casa San José, a community resource center in Beechview that advocates for and empowers immigrants from Latinxs by promoting integration and self-sufficiency. Founded in 2014, Casa San José has grown to become a go-to source of support to help underserved Latinx immigrants access the assistance and services they need, including interpretation, case management, and protection for immigrants at risk of deportation.
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 $32,434 to 41 justice partners. If you know of an organization or project doing good works contact <sharetheplate at alleghenyuu.org>.
