Planned Parenthood Wisconsin is our March Share the Plate recipient, chosen by the teens in our Youth Program. Every year our youth nominate and vote on a recipient for the Share the Plate program. 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.” Planned Parenthood Wisconsin reflects the diverse needs of our communities. It currently provides affordable quality and confidential health care to 60,000 people each year in their 22 health centers across Wisconsin.
Cash collected in the plate will be shared 50/50 between Planned Parenthood and First Church. To donate only to Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin, please write a check directly to them, and we will mail it for you. Parents and guardians, please talk with your children how even small donations help.
