The Big Giveaway
The Big Giveaway 2019 will be held on Saturday, August 24th, from 7am - 3pm. To find out more details and ways to get involved, click here. If you have questions about the Big Giveaway or how to serve, please call 979-777-5555.
The Big Giveaway is an annual tradition where we collect furniture, bicycles, and household items to donate to incoming international students who arrive in College Station with perhaps only a suitcase. Through meeting international students' material needs, we strive to be the hands and feet of Jesus to mostly non-believing students who have the opportunity to go back home and share the Gospel to the nations!
Statistically speaking, here is what happened at the most recent Big Giveaway:
- A total of 550 people were served, including 278 furniture sets given away with an average of 4-5 pieces in each set.
- Our first ever Big Party on Friday night was a hit! Thanks to the work of our fellow outreach-minded local churches and international ministry organizations, we were able to provide over 700 international students at Anderson Park with food, music, and fellowship.
- Over 200 volunteers helped before, during, and after to sort and move furniture for students as well as to help set-up for Sunday morning services being held the next day. To you, we say THANK YOU!
Outside of statistics, we know many stories of people who were able to share the gospel, share their testimonies, and form relationships with new friends. If you have stories to share about your Giveaway experience, or you would like to get connected with new international students, email email@example.com.
