The share the plate recipient for September 2019 is the Hispanic League of W-S (HL). The HL greatly improves the Winston-Salem community through ambitious multicultural offerings, and strong, vital support for our Hispanic neighbors. Education is a major initiative. For decades, it has continuously strengthened its Hispanic Middle School Achiever’s program, which provides role models, structure and discipline to many students. Since 2000, the HL has awarded 454 well-deserving local Hispanic students with, cumulatively, over one million dollars in higher education scholarships. The HL, working with their community partners, provide essential services, such as community ID cards (accepted by banks, police, etc), free health drives, and vital information sessions. Multiculturally, the HL will present the 27th annual Fiesta in downtown W-S on 9/14/19 as well as Spanish Gala, Colorful Sounds and other Latino treasures.
Fifty percent of all cash and non-designated checks collected during the month of September will go to the Hispanic League. Please be generous.
