Atheists Helping the Homeless completes its 31st giveaway, begins charter groups

Atheists Helping the Homeless giveaway tableSince September 2009, atheist volunteers in Texas have been gathering on Sundays at 7th Street and the I-35 freeway in downtown Austin to help the homeless.  The location is a popular place, where a number of church groups also give  food, clothing and aid, but their help is accompanied with preaching and religious music.

Atheists Helping the Homeless provides a secular approach and fills a need that has not been adequately met by providing toiletries and other non-perishable items.

On Sunday, the group finished its 31st giveaway.  They say that they have helped over 1,500 homeless people so far.

Atheists Helping the Homeless is now forming chapter groups outside of the Austin area.

100% of donations — whether in cash or in product — goes toward helping those in need.
