Help Often. That's our middle name. If you're looking for a place to connect with your fellow Assemblers and do some good for the community, you've come to the right place!
If you're looking to get involved with the Sunday Assembly community itself, check out the Volunteer section. Or stop by the Social section to sign up for member sponsored events or propose a meet-up of your very own.
SALA service events aim to do good in our communities while cultivating a culture of service among attendees of Sunday Assembly LA. While live, in-person events whose purpose is fundraising for a charitable cause are welcome, event listings containing a direct link to contribute funds to outside organizations will not be approved. Thank you for your understanding.
Baby2Baby works with homeless and domestic violence shelters, Head Start programs, and children’s hospitals to provide low-income children ages 0-12 years with diapers, clothing and all the basic necessities that every child deserves.The Southern California Fires have devastated whole communities and removed many families across Los Angeles from their homes. In response to this tragedy, Baby2Baby posted an Amazon registry on our Instagram to get supplies to the families who need them. They've had amazing response so far (over 3000 packages purchased!!) from many generous people across the country! Every item is currently getting sent to their warehouse in Culver City where they'll organize it and package it up to be sent to evacuation locations.That's where we come in!Baby2baby is looking for some extra hands to help organize, inventory, and sort through the massive amount of donations being sent their way! They'll be hosting an open volunteer session, Wednesday, January 17th 2017 from 10am-12pm at their warehouse in Culver City. The address is 8439 Steller Drive, Culver City, CA, 90232.We would absolutely love to see you there to help us help these families!If you can't physically come and help here's the Amazon registry they've set up so we can donate to help these families.
Justin Baldoni, in partnership with The Wayfarer Foundation, has created the Skid Row Carnival of Love. This event is one of the best we have ever seen being offered to the overwhelming number of homeless people in Los Angeles. Serving the less fortunate by providing them with necessities, as well as going above and beyond to better the lives of those who could use a helping hand.
Along with the donation of clothing, toys, blankets, hygiene products, and toiletries, some of the services offered at the Carnival of Love are:
- Health (medical and mental services, dental, blood pressure tests, HIV testing, etc.)
- Legal advice
- Career Opportunities (resume building, interview prep, interviews by participating companies, and opportunities to enroll in programs like Good Will WorkSource)
- Spa area with feet washing, hair cutting, barbers, showers, and more
- DMV issuing identification cards
- Food and carnival snacks
- Kid area (bounce house, yoga, rock climbing, crafts, etc.)
- Creative area for all ages (painting and crafts)
- Dog grooming, referrals for free vet care, and donation center
- Carnival games
