Joe Zamecki and fellow atheists in Austin, Texas have been helping the homeless frequently over the past couple years and tomorrow is their 16th such giveaway. It’ll take place at 8:00 a.m. and all the details can be found here.
Joe gave me a few more details in an email:
We’ll have multiple birthday cakes to share, in addition to the regular items we give out. Plus we’ll be giving out a few new types of items, like stuffed animals for the kids. Yes, we still get entire families coming to our tables for help. We still need donations and other forms of help, so please check out our website: www.AtheistVolunteers.org/AustinWe greatly appreciate all the donations, volunteer work, word of mouth, and online publicity we’ve been given over the last year, and we are determined to continue helping folks in need with this group. All without preaching and with no cost overhead.
Whenever you hear a theist say that people without religion lack basic moral values, please point to Atheists Helping the Homeless. We’re people helping people — no gods needed.
It’s a wonderful program and I’m thrilled that the atheists in the area are able to get together and help people who really need it, regardless of their religious backgrounds.
