Thousands of Texas State students will fan out across the city of San Marcos on April 9 to paint houses, repair playgrounds and plant flowers for their neighbors.
Bobcat Build is a community service project designed to cultivate a positive relationship between the university and the San Marcos community.
According the Bobcat Build website, “The mission of Bobcat Build is to create a Texas State tradition of pride through a day of service projects that builds awareness, builds community and builds tradition.”
Last year, mare than 3,000 participants volunteered for Bobcat Build. Organizers expect even more people to participate this year. The event kicks off at the Bobcat Stadium east parking lot on Saturday, April 9 at 8:30 a.m.
