Community Projects

Big Event 2021 will be hosted on the morning of Saturday, March 20th and the afternoon of  Sunday, March 21st. This year we have additional criteria that must be met for  project sites in consideration for community health and safety:

LOU Community Members: 

Unfortunately, due to the ongoing pandemic and campus safety measures, Big Event is unable to send volunteers to residential project sites this year. Our students and the organization are heartbroken that we will not be about to serve our entire community this year, but we look forward to expanding our reach in Big Event 2022.

We send you our best and hope you and your loved ones stay well as we ride out COVID-19. We hope to host your project site next year! If you have additional questions, please contact us at 

Eligible Project Sites: 

Due to COVID-19 safety measures, Big Event will host a smaller number of eligible project sites that meet our safety criteria. Those sites include but are not limited to: schools, churches, non-profit organizations, community centers, and city/county supervised sites. If you or your organization fall under one of these eligible groups and you would like to register a project, please contact us at
