Art Helps and Heals the Heart
This BCPP signature program allows Students to create art and write cards to foster social support for homebound seniors in their community. Another component of this program is BCPP’s Art & Photography Showcase held each spring.
Trick-or-Treat for Cans
BCPP partnered with AU Bookstore to collect over 1400 lbs of canned food to support the East Alabama Food Bank.

Supporters also included Department of Sociology, Anthropology and Social Work, Department of Curriculum and Teaching, College of Liberal Arts Deans Office, College of Liberal Arts Student Services Office, School of Communication and Journalism, and Department of Political Science.
