October Team of the Month: South Jersey HumanistsBy Administrator
Congratulations to Beyond Belief Network’s October Team of the Month: South Jersey Humanists! South Jersey Humanists is currently a Level One BBN team. This team was chosen for Team of the Month recognition because of their dedication towards the improvement of their local community as well as their interesting service events.
In April, four members of South Jersey Humanists participated in the AIDS Walk Atlantic City along with members of Camden County Humanists. The team promoted and solicited $500 worth of donations, meeting their team goal. Later that same month, South Jersey Humanists set up a table at a regional Earth Day event in their area. At their station, kids created magnets and paperweights.
Over the summer, South Jersey Humanists also grew produce at a local community garden to donate to the Community Food Bank of New Jersey. They donated over eighty-five pounds of produce, including radishes, turnips, tomatoes, zucchini, squash, and cucumbers. What a terrific effort!
Beyond Belief Network again congratulates South Jersey Humanists for receiving this honor and wishes them continued success in their endeavors.
Team of the Month recognition is a benefit provided by Foundation Beyond Belief to our Beyond Belief Network teams. In order to be considered, your group must be a Level One Beyond Belief Network team and you must submit at least one event report during the month. Team of the Month selection is based on the number, length, variety, and documentation (e.g., submitted pictures, blog posts, videos, etc.) of events.
Teams can only be Team of the Month once per calendar year. If your local group does great service work, but isn’t a member of BBN, you can join anytime! In addition to recognition, your team can qualify for free t-shirts and grants. If your local humanist group doesn’t volunteer, but you’d like to start, we’d love to help! For teams new to secular service, we offer tons of ideas, event guides, and advice.
