We are looking at quarterly or monthly donation collections, and are already scoping a Thanksgiving and holiday celebration. Thank you.”

“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.”

“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!”
