Community Service

While the ACA is primarily an educational organization, we do have a few community service events including the blood drive and adopt-a-street program. Of course, many of our members peform a wide variety of charity work outside the ACA.

Blood Drive

About every eight weeks, the ACA has a blood drive at The Blood & Tissue Center of Central Texas on 4300 North Lamar Boulevard [Map]. Each drive is on a Saturday at 10am. See our calendar for a complete list of scheduled donation times.

If you are interesting in participating see their FAQ and make sure you are eligible to donate. Feel free to drop by for moral support even if you aren't eligible.

Keep Austin Beautiful

The ACA is proud to participate in the Keep Austin Beautiful Adopt-A-Street program. The program allows organizations to contribute to the community by keeping litter down on Austin streets in exchange for a KAB sign, bearing the organization's name. We currently have two locations. In North Austin, our sign proclaims a bit of Burnet road (between West Anderson Lane and Ohlen Road) for the Atheist Community of Austin. The new South Austin location is South Lamar between Barton Skyway and Panther Trail.

We generally meet on the 3rd Saturday of the month at 11am for a group outing to pick up trash and help the greater community. See our calendar for specific dates and times. We alternate between the North and South locations. On pick-up days, volunteers should meet at the meeting location with hats, gloves, safety vests (if you got one at a previous clean up), and bags. The effort lasts about an hour and the group often goes out for a meal afterwards.

  • North (odd numbered months): Jack-in-the-Box on the Northeast corner of Burnet and Anderson [Map].
  • South (even numbered months): Parking lot West of Half Price Books, 2929 S Lamar Blvd. [Map].

Former board Member Joe Zamecki originally set up our participation in early 2007. He is again our current organizer.
