TEXARKANA, Texas – Texas A&M University-Texarkana is seeking sites and projects where university volunteers can lend a hand during its annual day of giving, called “The Big Event- Eagle Pride City Wide.” The annual day of service scatters hundreds of A&M-Texarkana students, faculty, staff, and alumni across the city for a day of giving back.
“Eagle Pride City Wide is one big day, one big event and one big thanks to our community, Texarkana USA,” said TAMUT Assistant Director of Student Life, Michael Stephenson. “This is simply our way of giving back to the community that supports our University. For one day, our campus community of students, faculty, staff, alumni and families unite to extend a helping hand. We rake yards, clean streets, rebuild parks, visit nursing homes, and much, much more.”
The university is currently looking for projects at non-profit organizations, businesses, schools, parks, food banks, and other locations where Big Event participants can lend a hand for a few hours on Saturday, April 18th.
