The Big Event, a day devoted to community, unity and serving others


The 2018 Grand Prairie Big Event has filled up and is no longer accepting applications for volunteers and jobs.

What is the Big Event?

The Grand Prairie Big Event will be March 24, 2018, from 8 a.m. - 1 p.m.  Patterned after similar events on university campuses, the Big Event is one day for city-wide volunteerism.  Celebrating unity in the community, we will pair volunteers who want to help, with residents who have qualifying service projects.  As the planning committee works out the details of the day, details will be added here.

History of the Big Event

After Councilwoman Jorja Clemson’s grandson participated in Texas A&M’s Big Event, she brought the idea to the city of Grand Prairie, a city with a long history of embracing service, volunteerism and philanthropy.

Mission Statement

Promoting unity in the community by pairing volunteers with service projects, Grand Prairie comes together for one big day of helping others.

Core Values

Service. People. Integrity.  This one-day event may not be based on socioeconomic need, but does seek to help those in the most need.  It is not about the number of volunteers, or the number of service projects so much as it is about the connections made and unity established through Grand Prairie.

How to Volunteer

Thank you all for volunteering to help. We have more than 1,000 volunteers and have closed registration for this event. We will do it again in Spring 2019. City of Grand Prairie's Volunteer Registration Portal

How to Submit a Service Request for Volunteer Assistance
