Re: [atheists-619] Volunteers Beyond Belief

From: Timothy H.
Sent on: Thursday, May 24, 2012 8:13 PM
I get involved when I can with local charity work.  I have been
working a lot with the local homeless shelter and the Women's center
here in Lock Haven.  myself and another local heathen recently
organized a charity walk with men in high heels for sexual assault
awareness month with proceeds benefiting the center.

June 23rd, we are going to be painting the garage at the new homeless
shelter which is set to open its doors in Lock Haven sometime this
summer.  Anyone interested in coming?
