December Give Away the Plate

Our offering during the service on Sunday, December 15, will go to Youth Squared – Youth Helping Youth, which is a Field of Interest Fund formed under the guidance of the Community Foundation for the Greater Capital Region. Youth Squared seeks to transform young people by encouraging them to participate in meaningful community service work. It funds and gives guidance to social action projects that are proposed, approved and led by young people as well as connecting youth to already existing community service projects. Participants of Youth Squared serve on the Advisory Board and learn philanthropic skills and has given out 41 grants of up to $500 to local, national and global youth who have creatively designed their own social action projects. For more information visit their website at
