A Month of Big Sundays – Our biggest annual event held throughout the month of May (formerly known as Big Sunday Weekend) draws thousands of people from California, of all ages and backgrounds, to work together at hundreds of nonprofits, schools and other agencies.
Our Really Big Community Calendar -The Big Sunday Community Calendar provides 70-to-80 volunteer opportunities and events with our nonprofit partners each month! Check it out to see how you can help! You’ll find everything from planting to pet adoptions to feeding the homeless.
Monthly on Melrose – Monthly on Melrose is our hugely popular series of workshops, collections, performances, parties and events that benefit our nonprofit partners. Each month, we’re doing something new, so click on the link above and find out how you can get involved.
TM@10 – Here’s the deal: Each Thursday morning, from 10:00 – 11:30 a.m., we host a service project at our offices on Melrose. All projects are at 6111 Melrose Ave. in L.A. There’s street parking and all ages are always welcome.
theBIGlist – Every week we hear from people in the Big Sunday community who have things to give away. At the same time, our nonprofit partners call us with emergency needs. Now we’ve made it official with our online wish list—check it out!
End of the Month Club – Once a month Big Sunday will sponsor a drive to collect non-perishable food for a local food pantry. On the third Wednesday of every month anyone who’d like is invited to stop by our office to drop off food and/or help us sort and box it.
Corporate Days of Service – We work with businesses and corporations to design and manage community service projects. Our projects are a great way for your company to give back to the community; build team spirit among employees; provide a benefit to employees and their families; and build corporate pride.
Holiday Volunteering & Giving Opportunities List– Between Thanksgiving and New Years Day, we post and publicize more than 150 holiday projects for our nonprofit partners. Check out this great list to see how your office, scout troop, class, sewing circle or family can give back during the holidays.
