Sept. 19th, 2015 - HDG Yard Sale!

Do you have some things lying around that you wouldn't mind parting with for a good cause? Consider donating them to the Humanists Doing Good yard sale!

HDG has exciting plans to create a Little Free Library on Aspen Street in Fruita! To do this, we need to raise some funds, so we will be having a fundraiser yard sale on Saturday, September 19th. Any extra proceeds raised will benefit the Humanists Doing Good organization. Final details will be coming soon, but please start looking around for clean, usable items you might want to donate to help. This is a great way to get your garage and closets cleaned out and make a difference in our community all at once!

Our current plan is to have people drop off their donated items early in the morning at the HUB Behavior Center parking lot immediately before we begin the yard sale. We are also seeking volunteers to help oversee the event throughout the day. If you would like to volunteer, please RSVP and let us know what time(s) you are available.

When: Saturday, September 19th (drop off items between 8 - 9 am and volunteer shifts available throughout the day)

Where: HUB Behavioral Center at 457 South 5th Street

Aug. 30th, 2015 - Biking the Riverfront Trail

Join us as we bike along the Riverfront Trail. Our current plan is to meet at the Western Colorado Botanic Gardens, 641 Struthers Ave, Grand Junction at 8:30 in the morning. It’s an easy to moderate ride – enough for some good exercise but not terribly strenuous. Everyone should be comfortable on their bike, but there is no technical riding. Most people will probably ride mountain or town bikes, but road bikes would work, too. (If you ARE comfortable biking but don’t have a bike, let us know and we might be able to bring an extra town bike.) Helmets, please, and it’s too crowded to try to ride with a dog!

The ride will be along the Riverfront Trail system. The trail is mostly along the Colorado River and we are planning to do about an hour out and an hour back to our starting point. Be sure to bring plenty of water and if you have a spare tube, that’s always a good idea. We recommend bringing a lunch to eat at the Botanical Garden after the ride.

When: Sunday, Aug. 30th at 8:30 am

Where: Western Colorado Botanic Gardens (641 Struthers Ave.)

Aug. 29th, 2015 - Harvesting Apples for Community Food Bank

Humanists Doing Good will be teaming up with Grow Another Row to harvest apples straight from the trees. The apples will then be donated to a community food bank(s). Volunteers will also be able to bring some apples home for personal use. The picking will be done at ground level and does not require ladders.

Restrooms are not available at the location. Please bring your own water and consider things like sun hats. You will need to bring your own boxes for any apples you wish to bring home and any extra boxes that you can donate toward the cause are appreciated. If you can bring a canvas bag to place apples in while picking, that can be helpful too. Please arrive on time so that we can all proceed to the orchard as a group.

When: Saturday, August 29th from 8:00 am - 10:00 am

Where: East Orchard Mesa - The location will be in east Orchard Mesa and directions and final information will be sent to those who RSVP.
