HAYS, Kan. -- As a "thank you" to the community that supports the university, more than 150 Fort Hays State University students, faculty and staff will spend one day giving back through various community service activities.

The FHSU Student Government Association's annual "Big Event" will be from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, May 2.

"This year we want the community to get involved as a whole," said Lizette Avalos, Liberal senior, SGA's Public and Community Relations Director. "This event is important for FHSU students to get involved and give to the community that gives so much to us, but also for Hays residents to share their passion for their community by working alongside of the FHSU family."

Some of the projects scheduled include working with Habitat for Humanity of Ellis County; working with the Arc of Central Plains, and park, creek and street cleanup.

To volunteer, sign-up online at www.fhsustudents.org/resources/big-event.

To suggest a project, contact Avalos by phone at 785-628-5311 or email l_avalos@fhsu.edu.
