SALISBURY, MD---Salisbury University students unite to help the community during the eighth annual Big Event community cleanup day, sponsored by the Student Government Association Saturday, April 14.
During the community service project, some 500 SU students help campus neighbors with household chores such as raking leaves, cleaning attics, and painting.
“The Big Event is a chance for students to connect with the residents of Salisbury and let them know that they mean a lot to the University community,” said Katherine Mooney, SGA vice president of external affairs. “The community does so much for SU, and this is just our way of saying, ‘thank you.’ It is also important that we get to know our neighbors and they get to know us because we can learn a lot from each other. Salisbury is our home too, and we want it to be as nice as it can be.”
”The Big Event is a day where students make a positive impact and difference for the community through our magnanimous gestures,” said Shanita Williams, SGA vice president of university affairs.
