The Big Event 2023 Executive Director speaking to all volunteers

The Big Event

The Big Event is a non-need-based student group that connects the KU campus with the Lawrence community. By recruiting thousands of student, faculty, and staff volunteers to work at hundreds of local job sites during one day of service, we are able to say thank you to the community that surrounds us all year. The Big Event volunteers provide a helping hand to Lawrence residents by completing projects in their neighborhoods.

Volunteer registration is open!

Register for The Big Event on October 21, 2023, 9 am- 12pm.
