Volunteer tips and reminders for the Big Event

To all our lovely registered Big Event volunteers: Here are a few tips and reminders for the Big Event on Saturday.

Registration is at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, in Lot 90, near the Ambler Student Recreation Fitness Center. Group leaders will go through the check-in line and pick up tools for their group. Everyone will get a Big Event T-shirt, and participate in our kickoff ceremony at 9:45 a.m.

Be sure to get each member of your group to sign the Participant Signup form — trade this in for a group packet at check-in. We’ll also need a signed Volunteer Statement of Understanding.

Volunteers will leave for job sites starting at 10 a.m. All service projects will be completed by 2 p.m. Each group will need to come back to the Big Event kickoff site to return supplies and job site surveys.

Find additional information on what to expect Saturday in our Big Event Participant Information Meeting presentation.

We’re excited to see 3,000 KU students, faculty and staff volunteer at 375 job sites around the Lawrence community on Saturday!
