Big Sunday Weekend is an annual spring event when thousands of people from California, of all ages and all backgrounds, work together at hundreds of nonprofits, schools, and other agencies that need help. Big Sunday’s mission is: “To build community through community service. We believe that everyone has some way that they can help somebody else.” Their founder, David T. Levinson, expands further: “I see events like Big Sunday Weekend as putting the spark to the flame. At the least, we get a lot of work done at the time; at the best, we become a catalyst for an involvement that continues throughout the year.”
On May 6, UCLA will participate in Big Sunday Weekend with thousands of other volunteers. Bruins will work with the Mountains Restoration Trust, which labors year-round with the mission to preserve and protect the natural resources of the Santa Monica Mountains. Our objective is to help restore the native habitat at Malibu Creek State Park by planting grasses, mulching, pulling weeds, and other nature tasks. This will make the park more beautiful and enjoyable for thousands of annual visitors and the native wildlife. Your hands will get dirty! Wear clothes you wouldn’t mind getting messy and closed-toe shoes.
We have reached capacity for this event. Thank you for your interest. We hope you will consider other One Bus, One Cause opportunities.
