HFA is seeking donations to support secular humanists throughout Florida who are in financial need. This fund will go towards providing the basics, especially food, to those who need it most. Says HFA president EllenBeth Wachs, "I personally can go without food for a day but I can't imagine not being able to feed a child or an elderly parent. Give someone some dignity. Give them the ability to feed their family."
HFA is a 501(c)3 educational association comprised of individuals and groups who share common values. It is one of the largest state associations for Humanism in the United States representing over 2500 humanists and 30 groups, including Jewish, Buddhist and secular humanist entities. With its 501(c)3 status, your donations are tax deductible.
The organization will be providing gift cards from local supermarkets for those who qualify for the program. Applications are available online and are confidential.
"Please consider giving $100, or about the cost of what your family would spend on a nice dinner. It is a most humanistic way to say 'thank you' for your own well-being," HFA writes.
