Who We Serve
We serve residents, churches, non-profits, etc. of Bryan/ College Station, regardless of their socioeconomic status! Unfortunately, we do not serve HOAs.
The Work We Do
A group of volunteers go to the residents house on the day of for a few hours and help with what they need. Staff assistants will plan a time with the resident to go to their house before the day of The Big Event to see what the resident wants to help with, what tools we need to provide and let the resident know what we can and cannot do.
Many residents normally request (but is not limited to) raking leaves, weeding, planting flowers, trenching, mulching, trimming trees,/ hedges, cleaning gutters, painting (both inside and outside), stripping paint, dusting, sweeping/ mopping, window washing, and general spring cleaning. If you have any questions about this list or what else may be included, feel free to contact us.
We are prepared to agree to any COVID precautions by the city/ state AND if the resident requests masks the students are more than happy to comply!
Why We Do What We Do
Thousands of volunteers look forward to this day every year so they are able to give back and express their gratitude to the community that supports Texas A&M. It is important to remember The Big Event is not about the number of jobs completed or the number of students who participate each year. Instead, it is the interaction between students and residents, and the unity that results throughout the community that makes The Big Event so unique.
For liability reasons, our students are not able to use any power tools or ladders over 6 ft.
