Brief: The Big Event organizes service in community

Review Staff Report

Washburn’s fifth annual Big Event will take place from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. April 21.

The Big Event, created in 2011, is designed to connect the Washburn campus with the Topeka community by recruiting hundreds of students, faculty, staff and community volunteers to work at local job sites during one day of service.

Volunteers are asked to show up at Whiting Gymnasium between 9 and 9:30 a.m.

Volunteers will receive a Big Event sweatshirt, lunch and transportation to their designated volunteer locations.

Some of those locations include Let’s Help, Boys and Girls Club and Harvesters.
