Community Partners

The Big Event has been able to help up to 70 project sites each year.

Project sites are the locations in which between 1,000 and 3,000 students have helped in some magnitude towards bettering our community. 

Volunteer projects go from 8:30 am to 11:30 am on the day of The Big Event. 

Project Site examples include volunteers helping with: 

Painting and refurbishing, environmental sustainability and beautification, landscaping, school carnivals, 5k run, painting parking lot stripes, organizing storage rooms, craft projects for kids, cleaning, pressure washing, building animal shelters, weeding and mulching, and much more! 

If you are interested in being a Community Partner for future Big Events, please contact the Office of Community Service -
