How many experiences should I put on my application?

I participated and volunteered for many fundraisers/drives/events during undergrad, but many of them were one-day things. Is it worth listing all of these in my application, or are a few extracurriculars, jobs, and longer-term volunteer experiences enough?

Hi! I'm a current applicant as well. Did you do these one-day events via a certain organization? For example, I'm in the same boat but I did it through organizations that I was a member of (example: HOSA). So I just listed the organization, the hours all of those one-day events added up to, and what kind of activities I took part in (food banks, marathons, blood drives, etc.)
