Atheists are just as caring and compassionate as anyone else, despite what the religious may say. Atheists Helping the Homeless in Austin, Texas, is an example.
Joe Zamecki, Texas State Director of American Atheists, gave an update on Giveaway #10 in Austin.
The care packages that the group assembles are geared to help people help themselves, and include toiletries to help job seekers clean up. Some of the items added to the ziplock plastic bags offered include granola bars, socks, a toothbrush, toothpaste, sanitizer, shampoo, deodorant and plastic-wrapped individual rolls of toilet paper. Atheists Helping the Homeless is also giving away MREs.
Joe will be joining us again on the God Discussion Radio show on March 18 with an update.
