An original CBT initiative, Trash Bash was created as a positive way for La Salle students to give back to the community, taking pride in cleaning the neighborhood and interacting with members of the community. In partnership with La Salle’s Student Government Association and other student organizations.
MLK Interfaith Service
The Annual Martin Luther King Day Interfaith Service is part of the University’s King’s Dream programming. The Interfaith Service features music, reflections on Dr. King’s legacy from a variety of faith traditions, and a keynote presentation. Following the tribute our community neighbors and University faculty, staff and students are enjoy a fellowship hour, featuring food and live music.
Community Health Fair
The Community Building Team hosts an annual Community Based Health Fair with nearly 40 vendors who offer health screenings, share educational information and lead demonstrations.
Community members and students will receive valuable information and unite surrounding a topic that impacts us all, health. The health fair is located in the Shoppes at La Salle Parking Lot. This space is accessible to all and a common space where neighbors and students meet. We anticipate this being an informative, fun, family event that is full of resources and vendors.
Students serve many roles throughout the afternoon, from volunteer, to performer, to participant. Additionally, nursing students have the great opportunity to put to practice what they learn in the classroom. At the launch of our first health fair, Councilwoman Cindy Bass was in attendance and shared a few words of healthy encouragement to participants.
Easter Fresh Produce Drive
Exploring Nutrition program coordinated the 2nd Annual Produce Drive. Over 3600 pounds of fresh produce were purchased and delivered to 15 local churches, feeding nearly 2,000 people and solidifying partnerships between La Salle and local churches and other community concerned with addressing hunger and nutrition issues in our community.

Commuter students and student homes with zero university and police citations are honored for being Great Neighbors in the Off-Campus community at our annual Off-Campus & Commuter Recognition which includes various activities. Campus & community partners are also recognized for their outstanding collaborations with Off-Campus & Commuter Communities.
