Volunteer with Austin Humanists at Work

 

June 16 - Austin Humanists at Work Give Away

Ethical Society Of Austin is excited to volunteer with Austin Humanists at Work for their May Giveaway.

If you are interested, please arrive at 8:40 AM for brief announcements and set up. They open the line at 9:00 AM sharp and finish by 10:00 AM, sometimes earlier. If you would like to come, please read their Volunteer 101 for ground rules. If you are interested in donating items, please review their list of needed items.

They meet in the 8th Street parking lot, under the Interstate 35 overpass. They set up in the northwest corner of the parking lot, closest to the Austin Police Department headquarters. You can park in the lot right where they set up. One of their volunteers wearing a yellow bandanna will point you in the right direction.

From there it’s a short drive to the regularly scheduled ESOA meeting, which starts at 10:30.

World Blood Donor Day

June 14 - World Blood Donor Day

The Ethical Society of Austin encourages its members, friends, and families to donate blood in their local communities to demonstrate the need or more blood donors and to promote blood donation as a humanitarian act. This event is part of a national Secular Week of Action, jointly held with the American Ethical Union, Secular Coalition for America, and many other organizations across the country. #EthicalAustin #EthicsInAction #secularweekofaction We Are Blood asks that you check with them regarding your eligibility to donate blood and not self-defer. Even if you have a tattoo, you may still be eligible to donate! We Are Blood has three permanent and several mobile locations where you can donate. Check for a location near you, and make an appointment.
