SALISBURY, MD---Salisbury University students unite to help the community during the fourth annual Big Event community cleanup day, sponsored by the Student Government Association Saturday, April 19.
During the day-long community service project, 300 SU students aid University neighbors in the Salisbury and Fruitland area by fulfilling requests to perform household chores such as raking leaves, cleaning attics and painting.
“The Big Event is an opportunity for Salisbury University students to show their appreciation to the community,” said Sean Jones, SGA vice president of University affairs.
So far, some 50 projects are planned for this year. Students will help neighbors with everything from spreading mulch and trimming trees to cleaning gutters and washing windows.
“We really want to give back to the community,” said Lili Afkhami, SGA president. “This is our community too."
