About The Big Event at KU

The Big Event 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. Big Event volunteers provide a helping hand to Lawrence residents by completing projects in their neighborhoods.

The fourth annual event is scheduled for Saturday, April 12, 2014. Registration for KU volunteers wishing to participate in the Big Event, and for Lawrence residents wishing to submit service requests to the Big Event, will open early in the spring 2014 semester.
