Help keep others warm this winter

The Centre for Inquiry is collecting donations of winter clothing, food and toiletry items this week.

The Okanagan branch of the Centre for Inquiry is gearing up for its second Good Without God winter clothing drive. They will be collecting donations of winter clothing, plus food and toiletry items from all over Kelowna. Volunteers will then deliver the donations to Inn From the Cold and to the Boys & Girls Club. Last year, they collected multiple car loads of donations to help the needy in Kelowna. They hope to repeat that success this year.

The Centre for Inquiry is a registered charity that promotes reason, science and secularism — as well as humanist values, such as helping fellow human beings in need. CFI-Okanagan’s assistant branch leader, Zena Ryder, says, “Belief in God is completely irrelevant to knowing that it’s right to help other people. Atheists can be good people, just as Christians and other religious believers can be. This clothing drive is just one way that we demonstrate that.”

If you would like to donate warm clothing, food or toiletry items, or if you have any questions please contact Zena at zryder@cficanada.ca or (250) 868-1473. Delivery to Inn From the Cold and the Boys & Girls Club will be on 23rd November. Visit cfiokanagan.ca for more information about CFI-Okanagan.
