Who We Help

Here is a list of the many nonprofits, schools and other agencies we have helped through all kinds of Big Sunday projects, whether on Big Sunday Weekend, during the holidays, as a Monthly on Melrose project, through an emergency need, on a corporate day of service, or any of the many other ways folks in the Big Sunday community come together to help others.

It’s our experience that these groups are always looking for people who can lend a hand, so please feel free to contact any one of them to see how you can help throughout the year. And check out the Big Sunday Community Calendar, too – many of these groups list their events and volunteer opportunities there.
