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.
Humanists Doing Good will be cleaning up our adopted stretch of road between the West Gate Inn and Mesa Mall. We will be trying out an evening cleanup event from 6:00 pm to roughly 8:00 pm. We typically also do a bit of a scavenger hunt to see who can find the most interesting, weird or valuable thing during the cleanup.
We supply trash bags and safety vests. We recommend that you bring your own water, sturdy footwear and gloves and consider things like sunscreen, hats, etc. We ask that all volunteers who wish to participate watch the two brief safety videos found at the following address:
When: Wednesday, May 10th from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Where: Park in the parking lot just to the east of the West Gate Inn and Roosters on Hwy 6&50.
