Share the Plate is a UCN program to support non-profit charitable organizations whose humanitarian and social justice goals reflect our UU principles.
November & December
The Share the Plate recipient for November and December came to our attention through the interview process of LaToya Bates, UCN’s new R.E. Director. Brian Bunzel and Leigh Hoftiezer noted on her curriculum vitae that she has dedicated herself to helping others in the community through an organization she created, Wounded Wings: Association for the Betterment of Women and Girls.
Established in 2002, Wounded Wings strives to meet the needs of BIPOC women and girls in the Milwaukee area who frequently face trauma in their daily lives. Their objective is to help women and girls overcome obstacles that keep them from utilizing their potential. Wounded Wings is an inclusive, anti-racist ministry. All are welcome in their interfaith, LGBTQIA+ affirming organization. Support programs are provided for women and girls who have suffered sexual and/or physical abuse, children whose mothers are incarcerated as well as their incarcerated mothers, and women and girls who are in need of fact-based sex education.
Half of the cash offerings go to the Wounded Wings: Association for the Betterment of Women and Girls. If you prefer to write a check, please write “Share the Plate” on the memo line and half of your check will be donated, whether you give it during the offertory at UCN or mail your check to the office. Electronic donations can be given through the PayPal link below and by scanning the QR code at the bottom of Unitarian Church North's newsletter the Northliner. Thank you for your generosity.
All Share The Plate Donations
UCN's Share the Plate Program was established in 2008 to help organizations doing social justice work, not just in our area, but around the world. It has been a tremendously successful endeavor. Half of the offertory is donated each collection period to the designated organization. The spreadsheet link below will take you to a 2 page document that lists past donation totals to each organization chronologically and alphabetically.
