The first Bruins Give Back volunteer service event of Kellogg Community College’s Spring 2019 semester will be held from 9 a.m. to noon Friday, Feb. 15, the Charitable Union in Battle Creek.

A campus-wide service initiative of the College’s Integrative Learning Department, Bruins Gives Back brings KCC students and employees together in service through volunteering at locations in and around Battle Creek.

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. More than 50 KCC student and employee volunteers served more than 150 hours through the three Bruins Gives Back events this fall.

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 participants receive a free Bruins Give Back T-shirt!

Future Spring 2019 Bruins Give Back dates include:

  • Friday, March 15, at Silver Star Apartments, a housing facility for homeless veterans in Battle Creek
  • Friday, April 26, in the community garden on KCC’s North Avenue campus
