“Community Service Week at Berkeley College helps build awareness about the role nonprofit organizations play in keeping our local communities strong and vibrant,” said Michael J. Smith, President of Berkeley College.
Community Service Week is an initiative of Berkeley Cares, which throughout the year assists charities in the critical areas of food, shelter, health and student success. The event began as Community Service Day in 2010, and expanded from a single day of service to a full week in 2017 to allow more flexibility to the organizations the College serves.
