Share The Plate: March Recipient Is Planned Parenthood by Dawn Blackmore

Planned Parenthood is our March Share the Plate recipient, chosen by the young adults in our Youth Program.  Every year our youth nominate and vote on a recipient for the month of March.  Planned Parenthood has many clinics in the Milwaukee area, as well as national offices and international partners.

 

As stated on their website:  “Planned Parenthood delivers vital reproductive health care, sex education, and information to millions of women, men, and young people worldwide. For nearly 100 years, Planned Parenthood has promoted a commonsense approach to women’s health and well-being, based on respect for each individual’s right to make informed, independent decisions about health, sex, and family planning.”

 

Cash collected in the plate will be shared 50/50 between Planned Parenthood and First Church. To donate only to Planned Parenthood, please write a check directly to the organization, and we will mail it for you. Parents and guardians, please talk with your children how even small donations help.
