GC GIVES Day: Nearly 1500 new students will do community service

A brand new program – GC GIVES Day – will be Saturday, Aug. 18, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. About 1,450 first-year students will do community service at 40 sites throughout Baldwin County. They’ll interact with the elderly and children, clean, pressure-wash, paint, do repairs, clear debris, pull weeds and mulch.

New Vice President of Student Affairs Shawn Brooks came up with idea. He wanted to introduce first-year students to an integral part of Georgia College life: volunteerism and civic engagement. The university teamed up with officials at Keep Milledgeville Baldwin Beautiful (KMBB) to find job locations, supplies and transportation for so many at once.

The day will begin around 8 a.m. on Front Campus with talks at 8:30 p.m. by Dr. Brooks, University President Steve Dorman, KMBB Executive Director Ashley Bacon and Milledgeville Mayor Mary Parham-Copelan. Each first-year student will get a “GC GIVES” t-shirt, grab-n-go breakfast, snacks and water. They’ll load onto 30 GC transit and Baldwin County school buses, then spread throughout the community and be working on-site around 9:30 a.m. 

For more information, please call the GIVE Center at 478-445-7358.
