The 2019 Big Event at Virginia Tech:

Date: April 06, 2019
Time: 8:00 AM - TBD
Venue: Virginia Tech
Description: Virginia Tech presents the 2019 Big Event at Virginia Tech on Saturday, April 6, 2019.

The Big Event at Virginia Tech is a student-run community service effort that has grown into the 2nd largest event of its kind in the nation. Every spring, thousands of students, faculty, and staff come together to complete hundreds of community service projects throughout Blacksburg, Christiansburg and the New River Valley. The Big Event: “One Big Day. One Big Thanks.”

Projects are completed regardless of need or socioeconomic status; instead, it is The Big Event’s goal to simply say, “Thank you.” Seeded in our university’s motto of Ut Prosim (That I may serve) students and community members come together for a truly unparalleled experience.

Examples of previous projects including washing windows, indoor cleaning, mulching, raking leaves, trimming trees and bushes and indoor or outdoor painting.
