The Atlanta Interfaith and Nonfaith Service Association (AINSA) organizes community volunteering events for people of differing religious faiths and non-religious people, enabling them to improve the lives of people they serve, build respect for each other, and have fun as a team!
Whether we are religious or not, we all can agree that it's good to:
- Serve others in our community
- Help others see or create employment opportunities
- Get together for fun and social activities (aside from service activities)
- Work together because of our similarities
- Establish communication and relationships across differences
Thus, the primary mission of this group will be for us to set aside any philosophical or theological differences and come together to engage in community service projects that serve others.
We can work on projects through Hands-On-Atlanta, the Atlanta Community Foodbank, Medshare International, Computers-For-Youth, cleaning up nature reserves, visiting hospitals to see children and elderly people in need, assisting in homeless shelters, and many other activities that help our local community.
In addition, we will plan activities for socializing and just enjoying food, friendship, and laughter!
If you are religious or non-religious, and enjoy spending time with other people who place a higher value on the common goal of serving others in the community, then join this group and we'll schedule some events around Atlanta!
Our common principle is RESPECT:
I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
