Registration to volunteer at the event closes March 29.

Students, faculty and staff have the chance to give back to the city that's home to Texas Tech University through Tech to Town.

Registration is open for this year's fourth annual event that promotes volunteerism throughout Lubbock. The event will begin at 8:15 a.m. on April 13 at Urbanovsky Park, located off of Flint Ave. across from the College of Media & Communication.

A collaborative effort between Student Union & Activities, TTU Student Government Association, the Office of the President, and the Volunteer Center of Lubbock, participants will volunteer at different places around the city including the South Plains Food Bank, Susan G. Komen West Texas and local parks. Transportation will be provided to and from Tech to Town projects.

"It is important for students, faculty and staff to give back to the local community," said Loni J. Crosby, activities adviser for Student Union & Activities. "It strengthens the connection that Texas Tech has with the City of Lubbock and says thank you for all of the support they provide year-round."

The day will end with the annual Spring Concert, hosted by Student Union & Activities, at 7 p.m.

Participants must register individually online to participate in Tech to Town. If an organization would like to register, indicate the full name of the organization on the form. Registration to participate in the event ends March 29.
