13. Bake bread or goodies for your friends or family and deliver to their doorsteps! Use safe practices.

14. Recommend good books, movies or binge-worthy shows to us and your friends to help pass the time!

Fundraiser for Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona

Hi everyone, we were planning to do a Food Drive for the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona in April, originally because of the cuts to SNAP benefits, now it is needed exponentially more due to the COVID-19 outbreak and subsequent unemployment rise. They are not accepting physical donations currently so an online donation drive is the best bet and will do the most good anyway. If you are able to give, please do so, if not please share. These donations go straight to the Community Food Bank so they can make use of them ASAP.

Coin Up App

What if you could simply donate your spare change from everyday purchases to support the TACO Team? Well now you can, because there’s an app for that!

We haves partnered with a revolutionary mobile donation app called Coin Up. This short video explains why we think Coin Up is so awesome.

In just 3 Easy Steps your spare change can start to make a big impact:

1. Download the (free) Coin Up App from the Apple Store OR visit http://www.coinupapp.com
2. Select “Tucson Atheist Community Outreach Team” as your charity
3. Link your bank card & set a monthly limit

Coin Up rounds up each transaction to the nearest dollar and donates the “spare change” directly to the TACO Team every month. Your information is secure and encrypted with the highest level of bank-approved technology. And, you’re always in control of your Coin Up donations by setting your monthly limit.

Imagine thousands of friends like you donating even $5 a month in spare change from credit/debit card purchases. Together we can make real CHANGE for Atheists, Non-religious and secular people in Southern AZ! Download the Coin Up app today!

Thank you!

Founder & President, The TACO Team
