The University of Central Arkansas community came together to give back during The Big Event on Saturday, March 11.
The Big Event is an annual event that brings UCA and Conway together through philanthropy and service.
UCA students, staff, faculty, and alumni united for one day of service to say “Thank You!” to the Conway community for all of the support they lend to our campus.
Each year, UCA students organize The Big Event where students, faculty and staff come together to give back to the Conway community through volunteer service. This event, which takes place each spring semester, is an opportunity for students to serve the community that supports them year round.
The Big Event began at Texas A&M University in 1982 and has spread to colleges and universities throughout the nation. Now in its fourth year at UCA, the Big Event has grown every year and attracted more than 600 student volunteers in 2016.
Organizations and residents of Conway are invited to submit a job request. Volunteers are available for indoor and outdoor tasks ranging from raking leaves, spreading mulch, painting and minor repairs, to organizing donated goods, participating in games and activities with senior citizens or completing other proposed projects.
Way to go, UCA Bears!
