The August Share the Plate recipient is Furniture Friends. Furniture Friends is a local, Westbrook based charitable and community organization which collects donated items and delivers them to refugees and people emerging from homelessness.

The connections between the mission and UU values include not only general community work and support for the very neediest, but also the basic concept that re-use is better for the planet than recycling every time. Allen Ave UU has a close connection with Furniture Friends. In the past members have donated household goods and others, including our youth, have volunteered to distribute furniture to families moving into their new homes.
