Super Storm Sandy

November 7, 2012

Dear Berkeley Community,

In the aftermath of Super Storm Sandy, we can reflect on the personal hardships that many of us have endured and reach out to those that are still in need.

Berkeley College has put forth a college-wide relief effort through Berkeley Cares to support the Food Banks in New Jersey and New York that support Newark, Monmouth and Ocean Counties, Hoboken, Downtown NYC, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, and other areas that experienced fatalities and loss of homes. This effort involves the collection of food and toiletries at each one of our campus locations. For collection locations and list of items needed, please see the column to the right.

For those of you who are looking to make a monetary donation, we have set up donation links to:

American Red Cross

Foodbank of NYC

Food Bank of New Jersey 

Food Bank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties 

Please see an additional list of organizations (in the column to the right) that are providing relief to those affected by the storm. If you would like to include any other organizations, please send the name of the organization and the link to Corina Slackman,

Your contributions to those affected are greatly appreciated.
