This student-led effort involves one big day of community service connecting the KU campus with the Lawrence community. Thousands of student, faculty, staff and alumni volunteers will contribute a day of service on hundreds of local projects on April 13. Community service has been a tradition among KU alumni and students for generations, however this year’s edition of The Big Event may very well be one of the largest coordinated volunteer efforts in KU history.
2013 will mark the third annual event for KU, following two successful editions in 2011 and 2012. And The Big Event just keeps getting bigger. Alumni can learn more and get involved at thebigeventku.com. Meantime, watch this video to see how these volunteers are making a difference in the community.
