The third and final Bruins Give Back volunteer service event of Kellogg Community College’s Fall 2017 semester will be held from 9 a.m. to noon Friday, Dec. 1, at three locations in Battle Creek, including two Habitat for Humanity sites.

A campus-wide service initiative of the College’s Service-Learning office, Bruins Gives Back brings KCC students and employees together in service through volunteering at locations in and around Battle Creek. Volunteers for the Dec. 1 event can choose to serve at one of the following locations:

  • The Habitat for Humanity ReStore, where volunteers will help prepare and organize donations for Christmas.
  • A Habitat for Humanity build site, where volunteers will help with general labor tasks such as painting, small home repairs, cleaning, etc.
  • KCC’s Regional Manufacturing Technology Center campus, where volunteers will help prepare the lights for Binder Park Zoo’s ZooLights holiday displays.

Bruins Give Back is held from 9 a.m. to noon on Fridays up to three times per semester, and past events have been located at elementary schools, community gardens and at various locations on campus at KCC, to name a few.

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 available at All volunteers will get a free Bruins Give Back T-shirt to keep and wear during the event.
