"Sock It to Winter!"
Running from December 17th (Member Meeting) through January 11th (Monthly Meetup) Lincoln Atheists is organizing a Sock and Underwear Drive for the Homeless Prevention Center run by People's City Mission (PCM). PCM is currently the best place in Lincoln for the homeless or near homeless to get resources they need with the least amount of hassle.
They are, however, always short of socks and underwear. To be donated, these items need to be new, so not many pairs get donated. With holiday sales coming up, we should be able to find some good deals on some socks and underwear for all ages and genders. We had great success last year, donating 27 packs of underwear and 60 packs of socks. Let's do it again!
For those of you that prefer to shop online, we have updated the Amazon Wishlist for the LA Community Service Committee to include socks and underwear.
Lincoln Atheists, along with Omaha Atheists, will again have a Reason this Season display in the Nebraska State Capitol Building during the upcoming holiday season. Our display advocates for the separation of church and state, so important in maintaining a free society where everyone is free to believe and worship, or not, as they see fit. Included with our static display will be an Ask an Atheist table where individuals are free to ask questions and talk with non-believers, something many people have never had the chance to do. It is a great opportunity for us to interact with the public in a very positive way.
Our display will be in the Capitol building the week before Christmas, running from Monday, December 19th through Saturday, December 24th. The Ask an Atheist table will be open from 8 am to 5 pm each day. We are in need of volunteers to cover that time. Shifts are just 1 or 2 hours each. We want to have 2 people (at least) at the table at all times so no one has to be there alone.
I know that this time of year can be quite hectic and weekday times can often be difficult to get away. Any time that you can assist would be greatly appreciated.
