Dec. 25th, 2012 - Holiday Treat Delivery

Volunteers from Humanists Doing Good will be delivering treats around the Grand Valley to people who are working or otherwise away from their friends and family for the holidays. Our members will be baking treats that we will package during our HumanLight holiday celebration. On the 25th we will send out teams of volunteers to give these surprise treats to. If you are interested in volunteering to help us deliver these treats, we'd love to hear from you. Our volunteers who made deliveries last year found it to be a very rewarding experience and they were able to brighten the day of many individuals. Delivery times and locations can be fairly flexible. To volunteer to deliver treats, please contact us by email or phone us at 970-623-2598 to let us know you're interested.

Dec. 23rd, 2012 - HumanLight Holiday & Treat Packaging

HumanLight illuminates Humanism's positive secular vision. In Western societies, late December is a season of good cheer and a time for gatherings of friends and families. During the winter holiday season, where the word "holiday" has taken on a more secular meaning, many events are observed. This tradition of celebrations, however, is grounded in supernatural religious beliefs that many people in modern society cannot accept. HumanLight presents an alternative reason to celebrate: a Humanist's vision of a good future. It is a future in which all people can identify with each other, behave with the highest moral standards, and work together toward a happy, just and peaceful world.

Humanists Doing Good will be celebrating the HumanLight holiday this year by asking everyone to bake treats that will be delivered to people who are stuck working or who are otherwise away from their families for the holidays. We are asking that these baked treats be brought to our celebration on the 23rd so that we can package them up for delivery as a group. We'll send out drivers on the 25th to deliver everything we have packaged. We are also encouraging people to bring a dish to share with everyone as we celebrate and package our goodie bags.

When: Sunday, December 23rd at 10:00 am to roughly noon

Where: Wraps on Main (150 W. Main Street, GJ)

Dec. 16th, 2012 - HDG Storage Volunteer Project

Humanists Doing Good has been offered the usage of a small storage space that requires a little work before it is ready to store things. We'll be doing some work to add some drywall to the space and then HDG will have some new storage capacity. The storage space is small, so we'll not have room for too many volunteers to be working simultaneously. If you have any drywall/handyman experience, we could certainly benefit from your help.

When: Dec. 16th, 10:00 am to roughly noon

Where: Contact us for directions at 970-623-2598
