Service Projects

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.

  • CREATIVE CORNER: Inspire Minds and Reduce Waste

    STEM Student with Barrels of Learning Materials


    What:
     Learn about materials and contribute to K-12 STEM education.

    Join us in taking part in helping an organization that is trying to expand the minds of and provide resources for STEM students from grades K through 12. Help add new donations, sort materials, help build stuff and more. We can help them with whatever they've got going on and we feel we can help with! 

    Trash for Teaching is a non-profit organization and material resource center that promotes recycling, sustainability and creativity in their warehouses and schools all over LA. 

    Volunteer Project: Help add new donations to the T4T warehouse and interact with shoppers. 

    Volunteer Role & Responsibilities: L.A. Works volunteers do various tasks around the T4T warehouse, according to their inclination and what we have going on!  We are constantly receiving interesting materials discarded by manufacturers and wholesalers, and you will often find yourself sorting and organizing colorful items that you have never imagined existed.  Other activities include folding fabric, loading and unloading the T4T truck in preparation for events, assisting customers who come to shop for materials in the warehouse, and using power tools to erect or tear down whatever structures we need at the moment.

    Requirements:

    Any volunteer between the ages of 14 and 17 MUST bring a signed copy of the Volunteer Agreement for Minors by a parent or guardian and all volunteers must bring a creative spirit!

  • Heal The Bay

     

    Nothin’ But Sand is a fantastic opportunity to show your local beach some love every third Saturday of the month.

    It is easy, fun and you'll get to see some of your favorite SALA faces. 

    Singles, couples, groups and businesses are welcome, and you’re encouraged to bring your friends—or make some new ones.

    See you at the beach!

     

    Things to remember:

    • All participants must sign a safety waiver form. Forms will be available at the cleanup site, but you’re encouraged to complete one in advance to speed up registrationThe cleanup starts promptly at 10 a.m. and winds down by 11:30. Be sure to stick around for the raffle at the end!
    • Be sure to bring cash for parking, or arrive early enough to find street parking. Some parking lots also accept credit/debit cards.
    • Help us make Nothin’ But Sand a zero-waste event! Bags, garden gloves, water, and healthy KIND Snacks (while supplies last) will be provided, but we encourage you to bring your own cleanup supplies and a reusable water bottle so we can reduce our environmental footprint.
    • The cleanup is rain or shine and will be cancelled only if there is a risk of lightning.
