Announcing a new Meetup for Sacramento Freethinkers Atheists & Nonbelievers (FAN)!
What: Sacramento Food Bank and Family Services Volunteer Opp (mobile food distribution
When: November 7, 2009 8:30 AM
Peace Lutheran Church
924 San Juan Rd
Sacramento, CA 95834
Sacramento FANS are invited to help bag and distribute food in cooperation with the Sacramento Food Bank on November 7th at 8:30 AM. This event will last until about 11:30 or 12:00. The distribution point will be the parking lot of Peace Lutheran Church.
We encourage our members to be active in community service and look at this as an opportunity to bond as a group and to provide much needed help in our community. As such, I would like to remind volunteers that this is not a political or non-theist agenda. We will be working side by side with folks of religious persuasion (mostly Christian I would assume), and this is not the place to challenge those beliefs verbally or with attire that might offend or put the Food Bank at risk. They rely on their religious constituents for much of their support and we do not want to offend anyone. We are after all, Freethinkers.
So, with that in mind, please consider the people who are helped by our efforts and show up with a smile on your face. It's got to feel good!

For those of you who were involved in our previous attempt to volunteer at the food bank, be assured that they have apologized for the previous behavior and welcome our group.
The address is 924 San Juan Rd Sacramento, CA 95834 [masked].
See you there!
