… a town will try to rebuild, heal the wounds (physical and mental), and help those that are now stuck with finding a place to live and covering medical bills that they might now have insurance for. Put yourself in their shoes… what would you do?

We aren’t preachy in what we do. We don’t send “atheist literature” with the help. Other than the checks saying “We Are Atheism”, there is NO message attached. We help to help. That’s it.
