Registration is open for ‘The Big Event’
Registration for faculty, staff and students to volunteer for one of the largest one-day service projects in the nation — the second “The Big Event: A Saluki Day of Service” on April 7 — closes on March 23.
By rallying together to participate in a day of community service, the “Saluki Day of Service” aspires to give back to our local community while encouraging year-round community engagement.
Saluki volunteers will work in teams to complete projects for non-profit agencies and organizations in the Carbondale area. The day will begin with a kick-off ceremony in the Student Center before volunteers depart in teams to non-profit sites around Carbondale. Volunteers will be participating in a variety of service-related activities including downtown cleanup, nature trail clearing, food pantry packaging, and more.
As a reminder, children are not able to participate in this event.
