National Day of Doing Good

Working together with several groups, including the Secular Hub and the Humanists of Colorado, Denver Atheists are participating in Make A Difference Day: National Day of Doing Good.  Working together as atheists, we want to show our community that we are vital, charitable members of our community, so you can make the city a better place AND demonstrate the true moral character of atheism at the same time!

The project we've chosen is clean up at Commons Park (19th and Platte Street) where we will be raking, trimming, pruning, and doing trash clean up.  All tools will be provided by Denver Parks & Recreation (see below for what you should bring!).  There will be liability waivers there to sign.

We will be meeting up at 8:45am at the REI Starbucks (to the right of the store entrance) to gather and socialize, then head over to the park to begin work at 9:30am (so if you can't meet up earlier, just meet us at 19th and Platte Street).  After a few hours of hard work, people can figure out a few places where those interested can grab lunch with new and old friends.

Children over 10 are welcome to attend, however DP&R requests that people do NOT bring pets.  No need to indicate if you can not make it, but so that we have adequate numbers, please be sure to be there!

Let me know if you have any questions.  Thanks and hope to see many of you out there!

PLEASE BRING:

  • Work gloves
  • Filled Water Bottle
  • Sunscreen
  • Dress appropriately for the weather
  • Sturdy footwear (no open toe shoes)
  • Hat

    We had a great showing on a day that turned out to be really nice. We wound up with a LOT of trash and some good stories. When we were done everyone went to lunch and got to know one another. Can ya say 'commmunity!'

    Hi Lora (:blatt:). I don't know of any Secular organizations for kids (they're truly rare!) but I do have several friends who do a lot of charity work for the Tennyson Center for Children of Abuse at Colorado Christian Home, which is a 501.c.3 non-profit, although christian. Here is their website if you want to check it out: http://www.childabuse.org/page.aspx?pid=214

    Let me know if you're interested.

    Bob and I had a not-so-good summer and are unable to help with the park but I'm wondering if there will be some kind of charity where I could donate lots of cute/most new stuffed kiddie animals. I know there will be Xmas drives but I'd rather not give them to Santa.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
