Completing the Community Center bundles is one of the main objectives in Stardew Valley and provides you with a variety of rewards.
For every bundle set you complete, you'll not only restore one of the rooms in the center, but part of Stardew Valley itself. This includes rebuilding the greenhouse on your farm and repairing bus.
There is, however, another route you can take to bringing the valley back to life. Purchasing a JojaMart Membership will allow the Joja Corporation to transform the Community Center into a warehouse and provide their own form of assistance.

How to unlock the Community Center in Stardew Valley
The Community Center is located in the northern section of Pelican Town, just to the west of the road that leads to the Carpenter's Shop. You won't be able to enter it, however, until the 5th of Spring in your first year.
Once the 5th of Spring has come you must enter Pelican Town via the road leading past the bus stop between 8am to 1pm on a sunny day.
If you enter by any other entrance, on a rainy day or not within this time window, then the Community Center cutscene won't play and you'll have to wait for another day to unlock it.
Follow the criteria correctly, however, and you'll find yourself running into Lewis, the mayor of Pelican Town. He'll tell you about the Community Center and how he's considering selling it to the Joja Market, but he seems to be oblivious to the weird creatures living in the center.
After watching the cutscene you'll discover a new quest, entitled 'Rat Problem,' in your journal, instructing you to investigate the Community Center.
Head back into the Community Center and enter the room in the lower left-hand corner. There you'll find a golden scroll on the ground, which, when you pick it up, you'll discover is written in a strange language.
You can now either finish up your plans for this day or head straight to bed.
The next morning, check your mailbox - you'll find a letter from the local wizard offering you help with the 'rat problem.' This will also start the quest, 'Meet the Wizard.'
The Wizard lives in a tower west of the forest lake. The quickest way to reach it is to leave your farm by the southern exit and then head west around the lake, until you come across the tower.
Upon entering the tower, the Wizard will introduce himself and will give you the ability to decipher the Junimo scrolls.
Now it's time to head back to the Community Center. Once you're there, head back into the room with the scroll and read it again.
You'll discover that it's transformed into the Crafts Room bundle set and you can start work on restoring the Community Center.
There is, however, another valley restoration path you can take and all it involves is buying a JojaMart Membership.
Community Center bundles in Stardew Valley explained
To restore the Community Center you must complete six sets of bundles - one for each dilapidated room. Each bundle consists of a variety of items that you can either find, make or grow during your farming career.
You can check your progress with the various bundles by either visiting the Community Center or by selecting the Golden Scroll symbol from your Inventory menu.
Items, however, can only be added to bundles when you're in the Community Center. It's also important to remember that items can't be removed from bundles, so be careful when deciding which items you're prepared to sacrifice.
When you first begin work on the Community Center, you'll only have access to the Craft Room bundle set, but, as you complete more bundles, you'll unlock a variety of different bundle sets.
You'll be rewarded for every bundle you complete, such as a set of seeds. Completing a set of bundles will not only restore the associated room in the Community Center, but will fix a problem within the valley, like rebuilding the greenhouse on your farm.
