What we're about

Central Ohio United Non-Theists (COUNT), is dedicated to Volunteering and Outreach in the central Ohio area. The projects that we take on are those that help the world around us and positively affect the lives and reputations of atheists and other non-believers.

We meet on Wednesday evenings to discuss upcoming projects and a weekly topic. We want to help develop and support the local atheist/non-theist community, discuss secular viewpoints, encourage a positive atheist/non-theist culture, and provide opportunities for socializing and friendship.

COUNT is a member of the Columbus Coalition of Reason (www.ColumbusCoR.org (http://www.ColumbusCor.org/)). COUNT endorses the mission of the Secular Coalition for America (secular.org (http://secular.org/)).

COUNT operates a Facebook page at www.facebook.com/groups/COUNT.discussions (http://www.facebook.com/groups/COUNT.discussions/) to promote discussions among members and visitors. The private Facebook group for the current members of the COUNT Steering Committee is at www.facebook.com/groups/COUNT.SC (http://www.facebook.com/groups/COUNT.SC/).

Contributions for the operation of COUNT are occasionally collected at meetings.

Adaptive Sports Connection

The Adaptive Sports Connection (ASC) helps veterans, children, and adults who need adaptive equipment or instruction to participate in sports. Volunteers of all abilities are needed - you don't have to already know how to kayak! Customers will sign up & pay $20 in advance and will be given use of a kayak, paddle and life jacket. Customers sign up at https://adaptivesportsconnection.org/go-kayaking/ Volunteers will assist with equipment, basic instruction, on water support and sanitizing gear and do not have to pay a fee. Volunteers must sign up at https://adaptivesportsconnection.org/volunteer/current-volunteer-opportunities/ See https://www.getoutandkayak.com for more details. Please take a few minutes to review the training materials before you volunteer as some of our normal processes have changed.

Columbus CoR Bleed-N-Feed

Carriage Place Donor Center [Red Cross]

Donate blood and go out to dinner with other donors. The Humanist Community of Central Ohio (HCCO) blood donation program has expanded to involve COUNT and other Columbus CoR folks. NOTE: PLEASE SCHEDULE IN ADVANCE VIA CALLING OR ONLINE!!! This location can be VERY busy, and if you don't schedule your donation, you may be turned away. Its time again for the awesome giving of the gift of life. We'll meet on the third Thursday every other month at 5 PM at the Carriage Place Red Cross and after we're all drained we'll refuel at a nearby restaurant. Our default is awesome Mexican food right around the corner at Chile Verde (but we may change it up sometimes). Please call 1-800-Red-Cross [masked]) to schedule your time. We'll just head over to the restaurant once everyone has donated who wishes to. Please post a comment if you want to donate with us but need to do it earlier or another day. And if you want to join for dinner we'll probably (depending on turn out) be headed there around 6 but feel free to comment on this event and we'll know to wait or grab a seat for you once we get there. :) Thank you for being a community that cares and actually does something about it. [If you donate via apheresis on another day or time, please comment with how many units and we will include you in the stats whether you are able to join us for dinner or not,]
