Photo Caption: In November and December 2015, Berkeley College Online® collected toys for St. Peter’s Haven, a transitional family shelter and food pantry in Clifton, NJ. The group selected the organization as an opportunity to serve the community where its office is located. According to St. Peter’s Haven, the organization’s goal is to keep families intact so that they can maintain the normal rhythm of family life. “We are delighted that Berkeley College has chosen to partner with us to make the holiday season a little brighter for the children impacted by poverty in our community,” said Lynn Bocchini, Manager, St. Peter’s Haven. “It is the generous support of our community that not only enables the work we do, but also inspires and motivates us to do more. Donations, volunteering, even the simple act of spreading the word about the needs of our community, all go a long way in helping us to raise awareness and fight the problems associated with hunger and homelessness.”
