For every questions asked, the club will donate one food can to charity.

“The three ways that you can help is that you can donate money, you can just donate cans,” Gourley said. “Or, if you ask a question, we’ll put in the money for a can per question you ask.”

The money will be donated to the Whire, a food pantry which gives supplies directly to Western Heights High School kids, he said.

Gourley said there are sure to be a variety of answers because the club members have varying views.

“Other than ‘does God exist?’ atheists agree on nothing,” he said.

Gourley said there is a limit on how much club funds can be donated, so by participating in the drive, students can help AAF donate more.

For every time a student stumps a club member, Gourley said, AAF will donate two cans to charity. He said the club has had some difficulty narrowing down the definition of stump though.

“I would say a stump is if they got us – if we said something and they proved we were wrong or they showed us we were incorrect,” Gourley said. “If they can get us, then we’ll do our part.”
