Our Share the Plate recipient for May is Tree Pittsburgh. Tree Pittsburgh works across Allegheny County to plant and care for trees where they are needed.  As the impacts of climate change grow, we must help communities to be more resilient to heat and increased rainfall.  By planting trees, we provide cooling shade and capture stormwater runoff; we bring beauty and wildlife habitat to areas often dominated by concrete.  Donations to Tree Pittsburgh will directly impact communities with low tree canopy, supporting education programs, tree planting, and ongoing tree maintenance.  Tree Pittsburgh relies heavily on volunteer support, visit www.treepittsburgh.org to learn more.
This is the last week to see the art exhibit in the Undercroft Gallery. If you have yet to view the exquisite Tazhib work of Iranian artist, Rahil Sahraei, be sure to check it out. It you want to own a piece for yourself, talk to Ali. Many thanks to Rahil and to Ali who arranged to be sure all the work was framed and all was shipped to us from Iran in time for our April-May Art Exhibit.
  DID YOU KNOW that First Unitarian church has a loan program for medical assistance items? If you, a friend, or a family member have a short-term need for crutches, a wheelchair, a walker, or other assistance items, we can help. Please contact Ioulía at ioulia.k@verizon.net
