On May 1-2, Big Sunday brightened the day for Phoenix House residents in Monrovia, Santa Fe Springs, and Lake View Terrace. Read The Los Angeles Times report from May 3, 2010 which includes a highlight of how volunteers participated in fixing up our facility in Monrovia.
At our program for women with children in Santa Fe Springs, 11 Big Sunday volunteers worked on two projects, reorganizing the donated-clothing room and planting more flowers in the Serenity Garden, created by Big Sunday volunteers two years ago.
At our program for women in Monrovia, volunteers repainted a long hallway with donated paint and spiffed up the facility for another year of services.
At Phoenix Academy of Los Angeles in Lake View Terrace, youth had a blast: after volunteering for Global Youth Service Day and celebrating their volunteer projects on April 25, they enjoyed a tour of Hollywood and a free movie at Grauman’s Chinese Theater, courtesy of Big Sunday.
In previous years, Big Sunday volunteers landscaped and planted a new garden at Phoenix House Venice (the mosaic features the Big Sunday logo) and at Phoenix Academy of Los Angeles, painted our facilities in Santa Ana and Monrovia, and chipped in to brighten our surroundings at our program in Santa Fe Springs. Phoenix House thanks Big Sunday for bringing so many new friends and sources of support to our programs serving our community!
