Kellogg Community College’s second Bruins Give Back volunteer event of the Fall 2015 semester will be held from 9 a.m. to noon Friday, Oct. 30, at two area locations:

  • Kingman Museum, where volunteers will help with clean up from Spooky Science Saturday events and help clean up the grounds.
  • Sprout Urban Farms, where volunteers will work in a community garden.

All KCC students and employees are invited to serve at this and future Bruins Give Back events, and can sign up online via the form at http://bit.ly/1W9mle8.

Bruins Give Back is a collaborative, campus-wide service program involving the College’s Service-Learning area, Student Life office and HandsOn Battle Creek. Each date – the event is held from 9 a.m. to noon on Fridays up to three times per semester – sees KCC students and employees volunteering together at locations in and around Battle Creek.

Past events have been located at elementary schools, community gardens, Habitat for Humanity and at various locations on campus at KCC, to name a few.

Nearly 160 KCC students and employees together volunteered for more than 400 hours through Bruins Give Back events during the Fall 2014 and Spring 2015 semesters.
