Donation Bins On Every Floor

17 November 2016

Hello, Berkeley City College!


The holiday season is approaching fast and we would like to come together to help donate goods to individuals and families in need. We must keep our families, friends, loved ones, and people we care about on our mind during this time of year. Keep your eyes open, and listen with “real” ears. Sometimes you’ll never know what people are going through, and cries for help can often be disguised as “doing well.” Let’s help by donating goods to others.

Donation bins are located on EVERY FLOOR (on the 5th floor it is in the student lounge).
Donations will be accepted from now until November 21, 2016.


Please Read: Please do not remove items from the bins unless asked to do so by Administration. Ambassadors are the only individuals that should remove items daily.
If you see anyone removing items from the bins without permission please report to campus security or inform the Ambassador desk!
