It's Share the Plate Week!
Three weeks ago, we celebrated Martin Luther King Day. In 1966, The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “Of all the forms of injustice, inequality in healthcare is the most shocking and the most inhuman.” Today, 55 years later, healthcare in our country remains available according to one’s ability to pay, not according to one’s need, and one American in seven lacks even basic health insurance coverage. This morning, the offering will be donated to the Community Free Clinic of Huntsville, a volunteer organization that provides quality free healthcare, health-related education, and medications to thousands of people in Madison County without health care benefits. Donations to this plate partner will be accepted this week through Saturday and the first week of March.
