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.
