Team Up with Big Sunday for Lots of Community Holiday Decorating
Once again this year, Big Sunday will be decorating loads of places _ hospitals, shelters, community centers, group homes and other great nonprofits _ for the holidays. The decorating starts after Thanksgiving and goes through December, and happens all over the place. Want to help? Great! Let Beenish know! (Lots of places have already asked for help. We can set up a time that mutually convenient for everyone. Or, if you're looking for someplace to decorate near you they can help you with that as well. Let Beenish know about that, too!)

They need your support in helping serve meals, clean tables, coordinate volunteer parking, distribute goodie bags, and more! 100% of ticket proceeds will go towards sponsoring comfortable transportation for their clients.https://www.eventbrite.com/e/path-pink-taco-thanksgiving-day-lunch-tickets-51430500010?aff=ebdssbdestsearch
