Give Away the Plate for November 2018

Our “Give Away the Plate” recipient for November 2018 is The Philadelphia Center.  From their website:

The Philadelphia Center developed in the spring of 1990 as concerned citizens responding to the HIV/AIDS epidemic as it spread into the Shreveport area of Louisiana.  Over the past 20 years, The Philadelphia Center has expanded to become the only HIV/AIDS resource center in Region VII.  The Philadelphia Center serves the parishes of Caddo, Bossier, Webster, Claiborne, Bienville, Red River, DeSoto, Sabine, and Natchitoches.

For the month of November 2018, All Souls will donate half of all our non-pledge income to the Philadelphia Center for a sponsorship of their 2019 Resolution Run in January.
