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 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 or contact 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!
