WHAT

Berkeley College and the Berkeley Cares initiative, which in the past would have been conducting its annual Community Service Week at this time to help dozens of nonprofit agencies in New Jersey and New York, is postponing those activities this season.

Berkeley Cares was created to organize efforts that address important social, economic and environmental issues in the community. Throughout each year, members of the Berkeley community provide thousands of hands-on volunteer hours, supporting organizations in the critical areas of food, health, shelter and student success.

WHO: 10 Berkeley College representatives from various departments who serve on the Berkeley College Community Service Week Planning Committee.
