Thanks for your interest! Once again this holiday season, we have over 300 (!!!) 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.

Of course, 2020 is the year that breaks just about every rule. As we write, we are still unsure what will be open, what will be safe, and what is to come. We’re starting with more than 300 helping and giving opportunities…and this will probably keep growing as the rules become clearer! (We’ll be updating weekly through December 17, so keep checking back!)

But this we do know: Whoever you are, whatever you do, there is somebody who could use your help this holiday season. Probably now, more than ever.

Please note that we do not sponsor most of the holiday projects on this list. Rather, we put them out to the Big Sunday community and hope someone sees it who wants to help. And every year, it’s incredible how many people do! Then again, this list gets forwarded, posted, copied, printed, and tweeted all over the place. Feel free to pass it along, too. Then again, some of our own popular annual events, such as our Thanksgiving shindig – online for 2020! – are here, too.

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! And if you enjoy helping at the holidays, please remember that Big Sunday has all kinds of great ways to give back throughout the year. We’d love your help. Feel free to check us out at www.bigsunday.org or contact info@bigsunday.org to see how you can get involved.

One other thing, special for 2020: 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. Volunteers must maintain six (6) feet of distance. Volunteers must wear masks to reduce the risk of exposure to yourself and others. And volunteers must follow any other safety protocols of our nonprofit partners. 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.

Have fun helping! Thanks again and stay safe and well during this most unusual holiday season!

Help the Hungry Find Food with Online Reseach with Food Oasis

Help the hungry find food by calling, emailing, and researching food pantries and soup kitchens for Food Oasis. Food Oasis is a website created by Hack for LA that aims to make it easy for people to both access and donate food, closing the food redistribution loop. This virtual volunteer opportunity occurs via Zoom. It starts off with a training where you'll learn about food insecurity and also how to gather the needed information. After that, you'll all spend an hour doing independent research. Finally, all volunteers will regroup to discuss. In the following week after the session, you are expected to follow up with any organizations you didn't catch. Weekdays are usually good. Los Angeles county has the largest number of food insecure people in the nation and yet wastes over one million tons of food a year! Your research will put mechanisms in place to stop that. REQUIREMENTS: You must be able to follow up with any non-responsive organizations throughout the following week.

Teach Computer Skills to Low Income Families

More kids are online schooling than ever, but not all guardians know how to help them with tech issues. Give Spanish-speaking guardians the tech-smarts they need to ensure their kids?۪ success. Aviva Famiy and Children's Services exists to uplift and serve LA families, especially during the hardships of the COVID-19 crisis. They specialize in services like crisis intervention, mental health, foster and adoption, and supportive housing for women and children. A big part of the achievement gap for Latinx students is lack of access to technology. If there are tech challenges, the child whose parent can help them navigate those is going to surpass the child whose parent cannot. You can help close the achievement gap for Latinx students by teaching Spanish-speaking guardians basic computer skills. In this virtual volunteer opportunity, you will assist Spanish-speaking parents with basic computer skills. A lesson will be instructed by the Project Leader, and then you?۪ll break out into small groups to mentor your partner(s) as they complete different activities. The whole group will then reassemble to discuss their experiences.

Food Oasis is a website created by Hack for LA that aims to make it easy for people to both access and donate food, closing the food redistribution loop. This virtual volunteer opportunity occurs via Zoom. It starts off with a training where you'll learn about food insecurity and also how to gather the needed information. After that, you'll all spend an hour doing independent research. Finally, all volunteers will regroup to discuss. In the following week after the session, you are expected to follow up with any organizations you didn't catch. Weekdays are usually good.
