History was written.
GC Gives kicked off in 2018, born from a desire by Georgia College leaders to engage first year students in the Milledgeville and Baldwin County community. The university chose to partner with Keep Milledgeville Baldwin Beautiful to create the community’s largest day of service. Incoming freshman and community volunteers came together and completed over 40 service projects in and around the area.
It was a massive chessboard with a myriad of pieces and players—all moving, interacting and ultimately helping the town and community that will be home to the freshman for the next four years.
Simultaneously, students and community volunteers provided charity work for various civic organizations, nonprofits, schools, churches and nursing homes. The donated labor had an estimated economic impact of $111,000. Plus, it gave students early insight beyond the classroom, introducing them to an integral part of Georgia College life: community engagement and service. This day is crucial and certainly a win for this community.
