The July 2024 Share the Plate charity recipient is “Planned Parenthood of Western Pennsylvania (PPWP)” . Tiffany Jimenez, Development Director for PPWP will address our congregation, in a short update, within the Sunday July 14th service.
Planned Parenthood of Western Pennsylvania’s  mission is to provide high-quality reproductive health care services, sexuality education, and strategic advocacy. We believe in the fundamental right of individuals to manage their fertility and their sexual and reproductive health without regard to income, marital status, race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, gender expression, age, national origin, or residence. PPWP believes that sexual and reproductive self-determination must be voluntary and preserve the individual’s right to privacy. We believe that respect and value for diversity in all aspects of our organization are essential to our well-being and that of our clients.  
  The July exhibit the Art Committee will hang in the Gallery is the work of the Women’s Alliance Sewing Circle, which has been making pillow cases for Children’s Hospital.
