Donate to The Big Event

Since 2013, around 3,000 students annually give back to our community through The Big Event. It is the largest volunteer movement in our campus’ history.

2018 Snack Drive

The Big Event is a community service day that since 2013 over 10,000 students, faculty, and staff have volunteered to help the Acadiana area. We would love for you to join us. But if you are unable to be with us that day, you can still help by donating snacks for the volunteers. We are looking for snacks that will give the volunteers energy like granola bars, chips, or crackers. We will have a snack donation drive February 28th - March 2nd 2018.

We can pick it up from you
All you have to do is purchase the item and get it to your office. We will come and pick it up from you. Fill out this form to sign up for a time for us to pick up the items. 

Or you can bring it to us to 106 Lee Hall. Anytime during office hours of February 28th - March 2nd. 


We invite you to join us this year to help make it even bigger! Join us this year by becoming a Big Event Sponsor. Your sponsorship will bring to fruition the desire of thousands of students to give back in a big way and make The Big Event a long and proud tradition for UL Lafayette and the community.

Businesses are also invited to come and promote their products or services by giving away promotional (free) items at a booth at the opening ceremony that kicks off the event the morning of March 24th. Thirty spots are available on a first come first serve basis. The deadline to register will be Friday, March 9, 2018 by 5pm. You can register here.

Through service, students will give back as one big thanks. That’s what makes The Big Event so big!
