What is Share the Plate? During each Sunday service, we take a collection. This voluntarily given money is then shared between our congregation and an organization from the local community which has goals that align with Unitarian Universalist principles. This month’s Share the Plate recipient is Oregon Black Pioneers.
The vision of Oregon Black Pioneers is to be the premier resource for Oregon’s African American culture and heritage information. They aspire to preserve this largely unknown and rich heritage and culture through collections and programs that promote scholarly research and public use. They envision becoming a center for study of Oregon’s African American life, heritage and culture.
Visit them at their website, or contact them directly; Oregon Black Pioneers, 117 Commercial St. NE, Ste. 210, Salem, OR 97301.
Please consider making a separate, one-time donation this month with “Oregon Black Pioneers” on the memo line, or as a Share the Plate donation.
