Berkeley Cares

Each year, Berkeley Cares provides thousands of hands-on volunteer hours in the areas of food, health, shelter and student success. During Community Service Week – the largest initiative of Berkeley Cares – Berkeley College staff, faculty, students and alumni contributed 1,800 hours to nonprofits and community organizations in New Jersey and New York. The College held its annual Community Service Week from Sunday, May 20, through Friday, May 25, 2018.
