The Student Government Association at the University of Southern Mississippi is hosting The Big Event, March 23, the fourth year for the city-wide community service project.
Students involved with the Student Government Association lead the volunteer effort, working with many Hattiesburg agencies that will benefit from their services, including Thames Elementary School, Edwards Street Food Pantry, Oseola McCarty Youth Development Center and the Salvation Army.
Gerald West, SGA member, says that participation in The Big Event is the perfect opportunity to serve others. "I'm not from Hattiesburg, but it is the place I now call home," West said. "I want to leave it better than I found it."
