The topic of charity came up at my last group meeting (Florence United Nontheists
in Florence, Alabama). We want to do something charitable for the community.
=== Here are some charities we came up with ===
Habitat for Humanity
Donate freethought/science books to the library
Operation Foxhole Atheists
local battered women's shelter
Helping Hands Animal Rescue
The Community Action Agency of Northwest Alabama (similar to Meals on Wheels)
Colbert Caring Center (pays partial utilities and vouchers for prescriptions and emergency supplies)
I wanted to get some other ideas about charity and community service. What are some other good charities? I am planing to do this as a group event. I want to avoid very religious charities. These are mostly non-religious minus Habitat for Humanity.
Have you participated in any charities and had an all around positive experience?
Also, I cross posted in Alabama Atheists Group
Thank you for any feedback,
Organizer, Florence United Nontheists
