WOODLAND PARK, NJ - A team of students and staff members from Berkeley College worked to clean up Grimes Park on Mt. Pleasant Avenue on Friday as part of the school's annual Community Service Day.

This year, Berkeley College extended its signature annual volunteerism event for Community Service Week, with  faculty, staff, alumni and students contributing hours of service at 43 nonprofit sites in New Jersey and New York throughout the week of May 21 to May 26. The initiative builds on Community Service Day, which began in 2010.

“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.
