Berkshire Community College’s (BCC) Diversity Committee and Service-Learning Program

A limited number of slots for volunteers from outside BCC are available. Registration is required.

“We are very excited. Our Day of Service has expanded from last year to include two new service sites. This day is a wonderful opportunity for members of the BCC community and the community at-large to come together to make a positive impact,” said Brianne Morrison, administrative aid with BCC’s Service-Learning.

Volunteers will meet at the First United Methodist Church located at 55 Fenn St. in Pittsfield at 8:30 a.m.

Volunteers will then disperse to the three locations for the day including:

The Harvest Table (Fenn Street): Volunteers will work with Harvest Table members to cook and serve a free community lunch.

Habitat for Humanity (Francis Ave): Volunteers will assist Habitat for Humanity members in revitalizing a local home.

Dower Square (Wahconah Street): Volunteers will spend the day working with young children and doing activities that help further Dr. King's messages.
