The first Bruins Give Back volunteer service event of Kellogg Community College’s Fall 2019 semester will be held from 9 a.m. to noon this Friday, Sept. 27, at the Charitable Union in 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.

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!
