UT students to give back to the community through Big Event March 22

About 1,500 University of Toledo students are expected to participate in this year’s Big Event, the University’s largest, student-run service project.

The Big Event is Saturday, March 22. Students gather at the UT Recreation Center on Main Campus beginning at 9:30 a.m. to receive their job site assignments. The service event is scheduled to run from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

UT students participate in the Big Event to give back to the Toledo community. They complete service projects such as yard work, painting houses, window washing and other tasks for the elderly. The groups work in neighborhoods close to UT, including Secor Gardens and Bancroft Hills, as well as other sites such as the Cherry Street Mission.

“I have been involved with the Big Event since I was a freshman and it grows bigger every year. I think UT is a strong, service-based school and the community is always beyond thankful for the service we do,” said Justin Walko, a junior in the College of Business and Innovation and director of the event.

Walko can be contacted at 614.257.8798.
