Applications Accepted for 11th 'Big Event' Cleanup Day
SALISBURY, MD---Salisbury University students unite to help the community during the 11th annual Big Event community cleanup day, sponsored by the Student Government Association (SGA) Saturday, April 18.
During the community service project, some 600 SU students help campus neighbors with household chores such as raking leaves, cleaning attics and painting. Properties surrounding SU are eligible. The deadline for applications is Sunday, April 5.
“For the past decade, the Big Event has been 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 Jacob Martin, SGA vice president of external affairs. “The community does so much for SU, and this is 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,” added Sarah McCullough, SGA vice president of University affairs. “Salisbury is our home, too, and we want it to be as nice as it can be.”
