Thanks for your interest! Once again this holiday season, we have over 450 (!!!) different opportunities for you to help someone else. We have projects helping all kinds of people, in all kinds of ways, all over the Southland.

Whoever you are, whatever you do, there is somebody who could use your help this holiday season.

We update this list weekly through December 31, so please keep checking back. If you’ve taken on or completed one of these projects, please email beenish@bigsunday.org and let us know – that way, we can thank you and direct other people to projects that still need their help!
