Students Live Out Their Education
For many years, BBC has set aside one day a year to give back to the community, providing students an opportunity to put what they are learning in the classroom into practice. This year on October 26 over 500 students, staff, and faculty inundated the surrounding area to paint, rake, mulch, and clean-up Scranton, Clarks Summit, South Abington, Dalton, and Clarks Green.
Students at the Salvation Army organized merchandise and sorted clothing. At Volunteer Action Center in Scranton, students sorted over 1600 pairs of socks for Sock It to Us, a program that allows local people to donate socks to various homeless outreaches in the area, and helped with a mailing. Students also raked leaves, pulled weeds, and picked up sticks at Nay Aug Park in Scranton.
Some of the other organizations that benefited from Community Appreciation Day are South Abington Town Hall, Abington Youth Center, Habitat for Humanity, Harmony Heart, Lackawanna Park, and the Sheridan Avenue and Ackerly Avenue Baseball Fields. In addition, groups of students worked their way through Clarks Green and Clarks Summit Boroughs raking the leaves in as many yards as they could during the morning.
