This Year it’s Back to School Week!

Monday, August 10 – Thursday, August 13
6111 Melrose Ave. Los Angeles, CA 90038

Available time slots below

This is a very unique school year. Even though many kids won’t be going back to “school”, they will be going to school – and for that reason we think it’s as important as ever (maybe more important!) that they have the supplies they need to thrive both academically and emotionally.

As such, we will of course be hosting our Annual Back to School Event. Sadly, we can’t have the big mid-August blowout that we usually do where we meet reps from the schools we’re helping, fill backpacks and then sit down to enjoy dinner together. (Always a blast, as you can see from the photos.)

Instead, we’ll be filling 2000 (!) backpacks in small (10 volunteers), safe, masked, socially-distanced sessions. As always, backpacks will go to underserved kids throughout the LA area.

Click and sign up on the time slot below that works best for you!

We have limited space per allotted time so if you decide to attend, we are closing that spot and reserving it for you. So before you sign up, please be absolutely sure that you will be able to attend. Also by signing up, you are agreeing to all of Big Sunday’s safety measures which include wearing a mask at all times and maintain 6 feet of distance.  Of course, if you are feeling sick or have been in contact with someone that has tested positive, do not attend the event and let us know so we can re-assign the space.  Thank you for understanding. We hope that will these safety protocols in place, we can provide a safe and impactful event.

Unable to attend, or you’d rather skip it this year? No worries! Click HERE to sponsor a backpack (or a bunch of ‘em!) for $25 each!

At Big Sunday, we’re doing our best to find ways to help – because there’ a greater need for it now than ever – but our volunteers’ safety is a top priority. To this extent, we’re promoting the Center of Disease Control (CDC) and local health department guidelines for social distancing practices for Covid-19. This is not only for your safety, but for others who want to help as well. We encourage volunteering, however, please note that you do so at your own risk. Participation confirms you hold Big Sunday and our nonprofit partners harmless to any claims stemming from this activity. (When applicable, you will be asked to sign a waiver.) Thanks for understanding.
