Share the Plate Recipient for October 2023 is Salem for Refugees

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 Salem for Refugees.

The mission of Salem for Refugees is to make it possible for refugees to rebuild their lives and thrive in Salem, Oregon. They strive to provide high quality services to our new neighbors: securing housing, English enrollment, cultural orientation, employment services, direct assistance, and donations, as well as friendly faces and conversation. Salem For Refugees is assigned cases to directly resettle or assist with our Portland-based resettlement agency partners

Please consider making a separate,  one-time donation this month with “Salem for Refugees” on the memo line, or as a Share the Plate donation.
