Sharing & Caring Opportunities

January Share the Plate: Project World Health

Share the Plate is now a month-long collection for a different charity organization each month. When you send your weekly contribution you can send in a check in the mail or via Paypal. Be sure to specify what is for Share the Plate and what is your pledge/weekly donation. This month, our Share the Plate charity is Project World Health

About Project World Health

Project World Health is a non-profit organization run by students at the University of South Florida’ s College of Medicine and College of Pharmacy.

“For more than 19 years we have worked with hundreds of medical students and physicians and have helped thousands of needy children and adults in such areas as Jarabacoa (Dominican Republic), Haiti, and Nicaragua. Each year we travel to the Dominican Republic for a medical mission trip bringing suitcases packed with medications and basic hygienic supplies including anti-parasitic medications, vitamins, toothbrushes, toothpaste, pain and fever medications and other items.”

Dr. Dan Eckstein, the son of one of our congregation members, has been a principal coordinator and participant for most of those 20 years, as has Dr. Jose Colon, a friend and former co-worker.

Exercise Your Green Thumb!

Our community garden has been safely socially distanced a little too long now, and needs some volunteers to help reinvigorate it by adopting a bed. There is still plenty of space available. Please contact spiritolifeuu@gmail.com to reserve your spot.
