The UNL Big Event is Back!

If you still want to sign up please check with the big event via email to see if they can take on more projects.

Yes, The UNL Big Event is back after a two year absence!

Since its introduction in 2006, The Big Event at University of Nebraska - Lincoln has become the largest, one-day, student run service project in the state of Nebraska. Each spring 3,000 UNL students will enter the community to serve the people that allow them to call Lincoln home. Could you use some help for that project that you are just not able to do on your own, maybe spring yard clean-up?

When you complete the on-line registration to request volunteers, the Big Event coordinators will assign students to come to your home and help with your job. Please note, students are restricted from using power tools. Examples of jobs they can do include painting (exterior or interior), plant trees or flowers, trash pick-up, 1st story window cleaning and interior house clean-up.

Students will spend three hours volunteering, from 12:30 pm – 3:30 pm Saturday, April 23rd. Depending on the job, they may work up to three hours at your home.

To sign up, visit the website: bigevent.unl.edu and click on “request volunteers, then “private residence”. From there you will fill out a form specifying the number of volunteers you can use and the type of project that the volunteers will help with. Registration deadline is March 4th.

If you have questions you may email bigevent.unl@ gmail.com.

If you need assistance signing up,
please call the WNA phone number at 402-413-0156, leave a message and someone will get back to you.

Changing times challenges us to keep in touch with as many Witherbee residents as possible. Avenues of communications change and newsletters, web sites, flyers and newspapers are not touching everybody any more. Online social networks have come quickly into the picture as a means to keep each other informed. That is why Witherbee has chosen to include Facebook pages as a communication tool to keep residents, young and old, up-to-date.

Please join Witherbee as a fan on Facebook and you will find pictures of events from cleanups, pool parties, block parties, lighting contests and much more. You will be informed of activities and events from the neighborhood in real time. You will be able to comment on posts, participate in discussions and communicate with each other.
