UToledo Students to Give Back to Community With March 25 BIG Event

The BIG Event, the largest, single-day student-run service project at The University of Toledo, is Saturday, March 25.

An annual UToledo event since 2001, the BIG Event has changed forms over the years, but the overall goal has remained the same: to give back to the Toledo community.

This year, approximately 350 students are expected to volunteer for the community-sponsored event at 16 service sites, including Toledo GROWs, the Junction Coalition and various food banks around the Toledo community.

“To me, BIG Event is one of the most important events that is put on at the University of Toledo,” said Hannah Spillett, a senior bioengineering student who serves as president of the BIG Event.

“Giving back to the community that gives you so much is an incredible thing to be able to do.”

Media are invited for a photo-op from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. at Toledo Gospel Rescue Mission’s Outreach Center, located at 670 Phillips Ave., and its women’s shelter located directly across the street, where students will be working inside and outside to help the organization clean the property and build a new shed.
