Big Giveaway

Volunteers

Thank you for your interest in welcoming new international students to our community! After two years of limitations due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are excited to relaunch the Big Giveaway for 2022. Last year, the Big Giveaway was able to serve 319 students with 254 volunteers from 7 local international student ministry partners and churches. We anticipate many more this year, and we need your help!

As the needs of international students have changed, we are shifting the operations of the Big Giveaway from a “come and get furniture” event to a “sign up and we will deliver” event. The Big Giveaway will not be accepting used furniture donations. Instead, we will be providing students with new in-box items. And we need your help! If you are interested in volunteering or donating to the Big Giveaway, please see below.

Thank you for your interest in welcoming new international students to our community! This year, the Big Giveaway made deliveries to 350+ students from 26 countries in partnership with 7 churches and 6 parachurch organizations. This would not have been possible without your help - thank you!

 

The Big Giveaway 2022 has concluded, but we look forward to coming together to serve new international students in the future!
