Big Sunday happily welcomes you to Our Really Big Community Calendar

We try to include all kinds of volunteering and helping opportunities for all kinds of interests, talents, passions, and ages! As you’ll see, these include volunteering opportunities (one-time and long-term) as well as the chance to support a nonprofit by attending fundraising events. Plus, of course, we include all of Big Sunday’s homegrown events, too! Whoever you are, and whatever you do, there is someone out there who could use your help.

If you have questions about our calendar, or would like to add a listing, please contact calendar@bigsunday.org or submit your event/opportunity via the button below.

NDVets Memorial Day 5K

We look for friendly, energetic volunteers to assist with our 5K run/walk. We need volunteers to help with everything from Check-In, staffing water stations, and cheering on walkers and runners along the course, to giving out medals at the finish line and cleaning up.

NDVets Annual Gala Dinner

For this event, we need focused and friendly volunteers to help with event registration and ushering.

Day of Service

Arrange a day when caring employees from your company or organization can come out to one of our many NDVets facilities and complete a volunteer project that includes jobs such as gardening, painting, cleaning, and assembling care packages.

Host a Fundraiser or Collection Drive

Add an opportunity for giving to your next company party or event by collecting donations for NDVets! Most donations are tax-deductible.

Lunches for our Welcome Center

Our Welcome Center is often the first stop for many of our veterans seeking help, and meals are much needed and appreciated! If your organization is interested in scheduling a day to donate bagged lunches for our veterans, please contact our volunteer coordinator at devvolunteer@ndvets.org.

Attend an NDVets event

When you support a New Directions for Veterans event, you directly support our mission and the veterans we serve. Take a look at our upcoming events to see what’s happening!

If you’d like to donate your time and talents to New Directions for Veterans

Please contact us, and we can discuss a volunteer opportunity that works for you! Call us at 310-914-4045 and ask for the Development Department, or email us at info@ndvets.org.
