Photo Caption: Berkeley College recently wrapped and delivered holiday gifts to La Casa de Don Pedro, an organization that provides social services to more than 50,000 people in the Greater Newark and Essex County areas. The donation was a joint effort by members of the Berkeley College Marketing department, who wrapped the gifts, and students from the Berkeley College campus in Newark, who delivered the gifts. “We are thrilled that Berkeley College chose to join La Casa de Don Pedro on our #GivingTuesday mission, by donating toys and gifts for the kids and teens we educate and support,” said Raymond Ocasio, Executive Director, La Casa de Don Pedro. “It was wonderful to have Santa and students stop by to deliver the presents! Knowing we can count on the Berkeley College community to give back and support La Casa means a lot to us.”
