A huge thank you to everyone who donated to the shared plate on November 24th to Planned Parenthood. We raised $1,076.64 for this important organization.
Planned Parenthood of the Southern Finger Lakes is a nonprofit family planning agency that provides high-quality, affordable reproductive and sexual health care for people across our region. Many of its patients have no other health care available to them. This summer federal funding to its parent organization was cut from $60 million to zero. Previously that funding had enabled Planned Parenthood nationally to provide more than 1.5 million low-income women each year with services like birth control and pregnancy tests, as well as screenings for sexually transmitted diseases and breast and cervical cancer.
