The Big Week of Giving



The 16th Annual Big Week of Giving: November 9 – November 13 2020

Thank you to everyone who contributed to this year’s BIG Week of Giving! The monetary donations were given to the Food Pantry for Adair County and the non-perishable food items were donated to the food pantry at the SERVE Center on Truman’s campus.

The SERVE Center will help with publicity and this is a great way to get involved in the Truman campus and in the Kirksville community. Contact us at for more information!

History of the Big Week of  Giving 

The SERVE Center kicked off the first Big Week of Giving in 2006. Each fall, the SERVE Center staff work to unify campus in order to raise money, canned food, and awareness for the Food Bank of Central and Northeast Missouri. The SERVE Center supports other organizations with publicity and ideas as they implement their own fundraisers and service projects during the week. The SERVE Center also implements their own activities, such as canned food drives, a Community Partner Appreciation Luncheon, and more.
