Welcome to Humanists Doing Good!
We are a nonprofit and nonreligious community of compassionate and rational people doing good for the sake of good. We are people learning, socializing and volunteering together. We are always looking for more people to join our cause and invite you to learn more about our organization and our beliefs. You just may be surprised to learn that great minds such as Albert Einstein have shared our vision.
Humanists Doing Good focuses on improving our lives by improving the lives of others.
Join in as we celebrate HDG's 6th anniversary and as we also celebrate the Flying Spaghetti Monster (pasta be upon him) once again! Pirate games, colanders, spaghetti, silliness and more will abound as we all take a moment to embrace our inner kid. Real kids are also more than welcome to join in the pirate-themed antics. Speaking of which, anyone wearing pirate attire receives bonus points!
Have no idea what any of this is about? Don't worry, we'll teach you! It actually all boils down (oh, so clever!) to separation of church and state and religious education at public schools. We are also taking this opportunity to invite Colorado Mesa University students who may be interested in helping start a Secular Student Alliance on campus to participate. We're working hard on relaunching the Secular Student Alliance at CMU this year.
Despite all the zaniness, we'll try to also pack in some monthly meeting topics during this event. We'll supply the basics for a spaghetti meal so you can just show up and eat, but you're welcome to bring anything else (except alcohol) you might like to have available too! HDG volunteer shirts or pirate attire are strongly encouraged and we recommend clothing/footwear that you can comfortably move around in on the grass.
When: Sunday, September 24th at Noon
Where: Pull into Stocker Stadium's large parking lot and head toward tennis courts. Just south of tennis courts and east of Lincoln Park pool, we'll be in a covered park shelter. Phone navigators might want to try Mantlo Circle to put you near the shelter we'll be in.

Humanists Doing Good will be setting up our final booth of the season at the Grand Junction Farmers Market on Main Street. Volunteers help with setting up our booth, staffing our table and taking down our booth at the end of the evening. We are happy to partner new volunteers with experienced volunteers and no previous experience is required. Help us reach out to our community and inform people about all the great things we do. It's also a fun way to meet new and interesting people. We typically have two volunteer shifts. The market does not officially open until 5:30 pm and closes at 8:30 pm.
When: Shifts from 4:00 - 6:30 and 6:30 - 8:45 pm available
Where: 300 Block of Main Street

We are again partnering with, The Community Alliance for Education and Hunger Relief. This time we will be picking tomatoes and cucumbers which will be donated to people in our community. This is one of our favorite volunteer activities so many of you know the drill. For those of you that don't please come wearing close toed shoes and bring gloves just in case. Also don't forget your bag so that you can take home fresh produce!
When: Monday, September 4th at 5:00 pm
Where: Western Colorado Research Center
