Big Give began in 2010 as an act of generosity from Open Life to the families of Liberty Ridge Elementary School with 150 Thanksgiving meals. The Bonney Lake Food Bank saw the potential of bringing all of the Thanksgiving food provision events together as one, so in 2011 the Big Give took on a community wide focus. In 2012, the Food Bank was no longer able to provide meals during the Thanksgiving Season and invited Open Life to take the lead in distributing Thanksgiving meal to the community. Soon, the Big Give became a community wide event with new partnerships that included Walmart, dozens of sponsors, as well as the support of the counseling departments in the Sumner School District on the plateau. In 2013, the event spread to Sumner for their first Big Give and now we’ve continued with two locations ever since.
