Charitable work in our community and elsewhere - atheist style

Does Tucson Atheists do any charitable work (of the traditional kind) in this community or elsewhere? If not, does any know of any non-religious, charitable organizations or events in Tucson? If again the answer is no, does anyone have any ideas for starting one? It would be beneficial to do good for humanity without strings attached and at the same time improve public relations for the atheist community. I believe atheists, free-thinkers, secular humanists etc are considered threatening by a notable portion of this country's population. Seems to me, the ignorant and disadvantaged among us (those most in need of our charity) are the ones in which these seeds of mistrust (and hate) are often the most easily sown. Any thoughts, comments would be greatly appreciated.

There are no specific Tucson Atheist, Skeptics of Tucson, or FreeThought Arizona charitable events in Tucson. However, many of our member participate in charitable activities within the Tucson community. The problem is that it is a very labor intensive effort to organize such efforts and most of our leaders are double and triple booked with other community support activities. Therefore, we've taken another tack on getting the word out that the FreeThinking community is in fact a contributing member to charitable activities. We're handing out, free of charge, T-shirts identifying our local volunteers that participate in charitable activities in the region. The program will kick off on Sunday the 16th of September. By visually identifying our members that are involved in charitable activities we hope to raise awareness that the FreeThinkers are also contributors.
