“As we do every year, my family (and my kids’ friends) had a blast during Big Sunday Weekend and made lots of new friends along the way!”
— M.T.O., La Crescenta
“The Big Sunday volunteers and residents of Our House worked together to clear and clean their third floor, which can now serve as a store for people in need to get clothing, shoes, diapers and more. It was a great experience. Thanks for giving us the opportunity to help others, and meet new people!”
— E.F. & G.F., Temple Isaiah (BSW)
“We had a great event. A really great event! Today, my CFO and I discussed how we could foster and maintain an ongoing relationship with the Family Emergency Shelter Coalition. We are looking at quarterly or monthly donation collections, and are already scoping a Thanksgiving and holiday celebration. Thank you.”
— G.H., Trinet, San Francisco (BSW)
“Our family had a great time volunteering at the Orange County Islamic Center! We have been participating in Big Sunday since 2005 and we love it. This is always a great way to spend quality time as a family and teach kids our kids’ valuable and meaningful ways to give to others.”
— L.M., Orange County Islamic Center
“Thanks for pairing us with Children of the Night – it was a perfect fit. Our skaters said that it was the most fun they’d had – they just loved the girls. We’re going to be working with them in the future (some even expressed interest in joining). One said she “found her calling!”
