The Big Event is Postponed.
The Big Event has become a tradition of selfless service at Virginia Tech as thousands of students come together for one day to say, “Thank you,” through service for the support from the Blacksburg and Christiansburg communities.
The Big Event gives students a way to give back to our community and show appreciation to ALL non-student residents and organizations of Blacksburg, Christiansburg, and the New River Valley by completing volunteer projects FREE of charge. Examples of previous projects include general yard work, painting, mulching, washing windows, cleaning, and minor repairs of general residences, churches, and other community locations. Projects should last no longer than 4 hours and must not involve power tools. If needed, tools can be provided by The Big Event.
Due to ongoing concerns over Covid-19, we will not be completing in-person service projects at homeowner sites on April 3rd. We are hopeful that we will be able to serve you more traditionally this coming Fall, but planning is not yet finalized.
