More than 2,000 volunteers, the Community Government Association's annual The Big Event has become the largest community service event Bloomsburg University holds. Each spring, student volunteers venture to more than 100 job sites across town and in local neighborhoods, tackling various needs from raking, painting, and cleaning.
Among the locations included The First Presbyterian Church, Children's Museum, Kocher Park, and roughly 75 local residences. Student volunteers tackled various chores such as raking, painting, gardening, mulching, removing debris, digging, and various spring-cleaning duties. Sponsored by the CGA, the single-day community service event allows students to say "thank you" to Bloomsburg area residents and show appreciation for the community we live, learn and work in.
