Big Sunday has a multitude of year round
volunteer opportunities. This organization
was the inspiration for our Volunteer Week
many years ago.
Youth in Action, http://bigsunday.org/youth-in-action/ is a part of this organization that focuses
on projects that enable individual kids or
groups to give back. Check it out!
This holiday season, think green...use reusable utensils, plates and glasses for your holiday get togethers, wrap presents in colorful reusable bags, give gifts of experiences and or edibles, not always things.
Volunteering helps make our world a better place-whether you're tutoring kids, helping in a hospital. clearing hiking trails or cleaning up the beach.
Let us know if you have a need or a volunteer opportunity that you'd like us to promote or co-sponsor.
We organize and promote volunteer projects that individuals of all ages can participate in. Our activities include a school supplies drive for School on Wheels, a toy drive, beautification projects at local schools and serving dinner to homeless clients of Turning Point Transitional Housing.
The Palisades community donated five carloads of toys in December. Toys were donated to children helped by One Voice and School on Wheels. Thanks to Benton's, CVS, Berkshire Hathaway, Regal Cleaners, Palisades-Malibu YMCA and the Pacific Palisades Chamber of Commerce. Thanks also to Vittorio's for putting on a great luncheon (for the 5th year) for kids living in shelters who are tutored by School on Wheels.
