During The Big Event on Oct. 24, more than 3,000 UL Lafayette students volunteered at more than 80 project sites organized by the United Way of Acadiana, in Lafayette, Acadia, Iberia, St. Martin, and Vermilion parishes.
Thanks to The Big Event volunteers, people will see cleaner streets, children will learn and play in refreshed school environments, and local non-profits put all those extra hands to good use.
The Big Event is a way for UL Lafayette students to thank the community and give back through volunteerism. And their impact was felt across Acadiana.
"This group of young people was really amazing! They were positive, upbeat, polite, and hardworking! As I told them, after working with them, I believe their future is brighter!"
