|The Big Event is May 2|
UND’s Big Event is back! The Big Event is a one-day community service project happening Saturday, May 2. In 2008, over 830 UND students, faculty, and staff members participated in volunteer work throughout the Grand Cities. The Big Event began at UND in the spring of 2005 and has grown ever since. The project is a great way for UND to say “thank you” to the Grand Cities for all the support they give to the University of North Dakota. The Big Event planning committee is in full swing, and our goal is to make this year’s Big Event bigger than ever. To make the day a success, we need your help.
The Big Event committee is currently accepting job requests. On May 2, volunteers will set out across the Grand Cities from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to do work such as painting, raking, spring cleaning, etc. No job is too big or too small and we can provide the supplies! Due to safety reasons, we ask that requests at individual homes be outdoor jobs only.
The Big Event also seeks sponsors. Donations are used to provide supplies to job sites, provide food and T-shirts to all volunteers, and for promotional expenses. Donations are tax-deductible, and top sponsors will be recognized on the Big Event T-shirts and in other advertising.
If you or your organization would like more information about requesting volunteers or Big Event sponsorship, please contact us. If you'd like to volunteer May 2 as part of The Big Event, watch for participation forms starting March 24.
