The Metro State Atheists are gearing up for a charity drive, one that couples feeding the poor with promoting freethought.
Food for Freethought is a food drive that also encourages freethought, freedom of expression, and free inquiry. We plan to accomplish this by giving “Banned” and Freethought books away in exchange for non-perishable food donations, that will be going to Food Bank of the Rockies, during “Banned Books Week”, September 27 – October 2 (specific dates below). Our goal is to raise an enormous amount of food for those in need. Most food drives are done during the holidays and tons of food is raised and distributed. That is all well and good, but when about the majority of the time that it isn’t the holiday season? The hungry don’t stop being hungry after the holidays, they are hungery now too! Given the existing goals of Metro State Atheists, it is only natural that we would attempt to help the hungry by promoting freethought, freedom of expression, and free inquiry. With the proper support, we can have an immeasurable positive community impact!
They’re collecting books now for the late September food drive — donate if you can!
