Wilkes University

Big Event

The Big Event is a single day of University-wide community service.

Our mission is to work together to unite, give back and foster growth among Wilkes Colonels and our neighbors. On an April Saturday, our students, faculty, staff and alumni take to the community as a single Army of Colonels to help those who are in need of assistance.

We rake yards, paint fences, groom gardens and much more. We work with local agencies to find volunteer sites. If you are in need of assistance, please call 914-837-4614 or email bigevent@wilkes.edu, leave your full name and phone number, and we will do our best to get back to you.
