First UU Share the Plate Charity for January 2023 is Habitat for Humanity of Greater Pittsburgh

Habitat for Humanity of Greater Pittsburgh is a nonprofit working to provide affordable homeownership and home repairs to limited-income families in the City of Pittsburgh and Allegheny County since 1986.

Habitat Pittsburgh has assisted 110 families in becoming first-time homeowners. Many of these families would not be homeowners today were it not for Habitat Pittsburgh’s guidance, educational classes, approval of credit, and underwriting of their mortgage. Habitat homes are constructed by Habitat Pittsburgh’s full-time construction team and dedicated volunteers. In 2023 Habitat Pittsburgh will be building six homes in Larimer and one in Penn Hills.

First UU has provided “Habitat Work Parties” of congregants for many years, most recently under the coordinating leadership of Marty Lieb. And we are proud, once again, to provide Habitat the opportunity to receive our Share the Plate funding this month. Thank you for your generosity!

To donate by check, please indicate the proportion you wish to go to Habitat … for credit card donation, go to the “GIVE” section of First UU website, and select “Habitat for Humanity.” Cash from the Sunday collection is split 50/50 between first UU and Habitat.
