Sept. 6th, 2014 - Apple Harvesting for Local Food Banks







Humanists Doing Good will be volunteering to pick Gala apples for local community food banks and people in need. We will once again be collaborating with the Grow Another Row organization. Volunteers will remain at ground level and will not be using ladders. We have been asked to try to bring as many boxes and/or plastic grocery bags as we can to place fruit in. Volunteers can bring some apples home in exchange for the labor of picking fruit for the food bank. Please plan on bringing your own water and be aware that bathrooms will not be available. We anticipate the harvest lasting approximately two hours and it will be located on the south east end of the valley. Arriving on time will be important as we will need to convoy to the field through locked gates.

The address will be sent to those who RSVP.

When: Saturday, September 6th at 8:30 am

*Please note that we have cancelled our planned UniversiTea event to respond to this request for assistance.

Aug. 27th, 2014 - Movie Night: The Hitch


Humanists Doing Good will be showing a documentary about Christopher Hitchens. He was a British-American author, polemicist, debater and journalist. One of his more famous books is titled God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything. His confrontational style of debate made him both a lauded and controversial figure. He berated such public figures as Mother Teresa, Bill Clinton, Henry Kissinger, Lady Diana, and Pope Benedict XVI. Many consider him to be one of the most articulate and contrarian intellectuals of his generation.

Love him or hate him, knowing more about him will help you further understand the modern nonreligious movement and one of its central figures. We will use the available time after the documentary for discussion. You are welcome to bring your own food and drink. Guests are also welcome to this showing.

When: Wednesday, Aug. 27th at 6:00 pm

Where: Community Room at the Mesa County Public Library (443 N. 6th Street, GJ)

Cost: Free
