Big Sunday's 6th Annual MLK Day Clothing Collection & Community Breakfast

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Big Sunday

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 6 people are interested

At Big Sunday, we’re often surprised by how many people simply don’t have enough clothes. So, once again, we’ll be collecting clothes for all kinds of disadvantaged and grateful people! We’ll be collecting clothes for women, men, boys & girls of all ages and all sizes. New and gently-used work clothes, casual clothes, warm clothes & coats, and athletic wear all needed, just to name a few. New socks and underwear are greatly appreciated, too! (You can even donate below and we’ll shop for new socks and underwear for you!)

Volunteers are needed to help sort, count, fold and pack all of the donated clothing to prepare it for our nonprofit recipients. Last year we gave away over 23,000 articles of clothing to more than a dozen wonderful organizations!

We’ll also have lots of fun arts & craft projects throughout the morning, awesome entertainment from the Blue Breeze Band, and of course, we’ll also all be enjoying breakfast together.

And, what would MLK Day be without Big Sunday’s Something in Common Project! Everyone is invited to meet someone new and find out what it is you have in common, and have your picture taken together.

In these divisive times, we’re especially looking forward to MLK Day this year. We can’t think of a better occasion for people of all ages, backgrounds and beliefs to be working together for a common cause. We like to think it’s what Dr. King worked so hard for.

All ages welcome!

Mission Statement

Big Sunday connects people through helping. We offer an enormous variety of opportunities and projects that unite people to improve lives, build community, and give everyone a sense of belonging.

Description

We organize over 2000 ways for you to get involved every year - from working on service projects at our headquarters, to helping us collect materials for food, book, and school supply drives, to joining us for school beautification projects, and much more! Below, you will find a summary of each of our programs - whether you’re interested in volunteering, contributing money or items, or co-producing a service event with us - there is truly a place for everyone at Big Sunday!

One more thing: We have participants of all ages, backgrounds and abilities. They come from all kinds of different neighborhoods, and we do work in all kinds of different neighborhoods, too. People take part in Big Sunday projects through schools, faith groups, businesses, clubs, as families and as individuals. Whoever you are, whatever you do, we can use your help.

You see, at Big Sunday, we feel there’s lots of work to be done - but we get so much more accomplished, and have so much more fun, when we do it all together.
