The Big Week of Giving

The SERVE Center kicked off the first Big Week of Giving in 2006. Each fall, the SERVE Center staff works to unify the campus 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 its own activities, such as canned food drives, a Community Partner Appreciation Luncheon, and more.

Pictured below are the results of our 2023 BIG Week of Giving fundraiser. This year we partnered with Residence Life, Pickler Memorial Library, and the Department for Public Safety in our efforts to collect donations. In total, we collected over 300+ canned goods to support the Food Pantry for Adair County.
