Several Volunteers Beyond Belief teams put their compassionate humanism into action in March. If your team has a fundraising or volunteer event to report, you can do it here. If you want to join VBB or our Partners program, apply here (be sure to specify which programs you’d like to apply for).
Military Atheists and Secular Humanists (MASH) Fort Bragg joined members of CNCAH (Central North Carolina Atheists & Humanists) to raise $736 for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation to fight childhood cancer. St. Baldrick’s encourages head-shaving in lieu of a walkathon. Five of their members volunteered their heads and beards for shaving.
SSA at University of South Carolina had a pasta dinner to benefit the Sexual Trauma Services of the Midlands. They had a speaker from STSM come speak to the group and are exploring ways to volunteer time as well as money. This is their sixth-annual benefit dinner.
Pennsylvania Nonbelievers packed boxes of food for the Central Pennsylvania food bank, which benefited low-income and elderly populations in their area. They worked with employees from a local credit union.
Siouxland Freethinkers had their monthly “Are You My Type? Freethinkers Blood Drive.” SSA at University of South Carolina also had their very first blood drive, and a fantastically successful one. They collected 28 pints of blood, and many students who weren’t members wanted to give.
