This year’s Big Event is on April 6, 2019Sign up with a group or as an individual to participate as a volunteer in one of our community service projects during The Big Event here: http://vtbigevent.org/volunteer.

Projects are completed regardless of need or socioeconomic status; instead, it is The Big Event’s goal to simply say, “Thank you.” Seeded in our university’s motto of Ut Prosim (That I may serve) students and community members come together for a truly unparalleled experience.

Last year, The Big Event completed 1,125 projects with the help of 8,140 volunteers. We hope to continue the tradition of setting our goals high, and are aiming to complete 1,200 projects in Blacksburg, Christiansburg, and New River Valley on April 6.

Share your great experiences with The Big Event by telling your friends about this opportunity so that we can make April 6, 2019 the most impactful “One Big Day. One Big Thanks.” to date. If you have any questions about the sign-up process, please contact bigevent@vt.edu.
