Geaux BIG Baton Rouge 2014

Margaret PriceGreetings, Tigers!
My name is Margaret Price, and I am the director of Geaux BIG Baton Rouge 2014. It has been my great pleasure to be with this organization from before its inception in January 2012 and watch it grow, transform and impact lives. The idea behind Geaux BIG Baton Rouge is an annual collegiate day of service that began with “The Big Event” program at Texas A&M in 1982 and has since spread to over 80 universities across the nation.

The first Geaux BIG Baton Rouge at LSU was held in April of last year and approximately 850 LSU students, faculty and staff volunteered at 29 worksites which collectively totaled 3,400 hours of work in the Baton Rouge community. This year, we are anticipating 2,500 volunteers to serve at over 50 locations.

I choose to Geaux BIG because it gives me the opportunity to be a part of something bigger than myself and also allows me to serve and build relationships with members of the community I would never otherwise meet. Whether you have a heart of service, an interest in connecting with the surrounding community in a meaningful way or are simply looking to fulfill community service hour requirements, Geaux BIG Baton Rouge is the event for you.

Join us on March 22 as we unite our campus with the Baton Rouge community for a fun-filled day of service and new friendships. Guest speakers and performances on the day of the event include Baton Rouge Mayor Kip Holden, LSU President and Chancellor F. King Alexander and our very own LSU cheerleaders. All volunteers will receive a free lunch and an unforgettable service experience.
