Each week, we share one third of our offering with a local nonprofit to show our support for organizations whose work furthers the values expressed in our denomination’s Seven Principles.  We hope that Share the Plate will also bring a greater awareness to the community of Allen Avenue UU Church and Unitarian-Universalist values.

Share the Plate recipients for the 2021-22 church year:

July – Maine Needs (nominated by AnneMarie Catanzano)
August – Furniture Friends (nominated by Taryn Walker)
September – Greater Portland Family Promise (annual contribution)
October – MUUSAN (annual contribution, nominated by the Social Justice Committee)
November – Project FEED (nominated by Sue Malcolm)
December – Minister’s Discretionary Fund (annual contribution)
January – Maine Healthcare Action (nominated by Delene Perley)
February – Sexual Assault Response Services (nominated by Rev. Donna Dolham)
March – Amjambo Africa (nominated by Sharon Horton)
April – College Guild (nominated by Beth Miller)
May – TBD (held for nomination from Senior Youth Group)
June – Presumpscot Regional Land Trust (nominated by Kassidy Helfant)

Share the Plate recipients are selected by the Social Justice Committee from nominations submitted by members of the congregation, usually for nonprofits for which they volunteer or have some other connection. At the first Sunday service of each month, the person who nominated the selected organization for that month presents an overview of the organization and its work to the congregation.

 

To make an offering online, you can give via Breeze and choose “Give to Plate”. Your offering will be shared with the organization for the current month.
