Be a big help on Big Sunday weekend. PHOTO COURTESY BIG SUNDAY
by Michael Berick
While the Big Sunday organization does community work around the Southern California all year long, Big Sunday is its biggest project. Now running three days, May 3-5, Big Sunday offers a variety of volunteer opportunities all around Los Angeles. Feel like cleaning up around a school? Woodland Hill’s Serrania Ave. School, L.A.’s Carthay Circle School and Cowan Ave. School in Westchester are just three of the many campuses hosting Big Sunday activities. You can lend a hand at L.A. Family Housing’s Cesar Chavez Shelter or donate a book to No Limits for Deaf Children. Find a master list and sign up for any of hundreds of volunteer opportunities at www.bigsunday.org.
Beautification and gardening are frequent Big Sunday volunteer projects. If you enjoy taking the time to stop and admire the flowers, mark National Public Garden Day May 10, the Friday after Big Sunday) on your calendar. Locally, Descanso Gardens and Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden will be participating by offering free admission and other special activities. Learn more at www.nationalpublicgardensday.org.
