Welcome to the Bergen Volunteer Center
The Bergen Volunteer Center turns caring into meaningful action by engaging volunteers to meet community needs.
“Total strangers, moved to kindness, by my story. . .”
-Hamilton, Lin Manuel Miranda
Having spent the summer immersed in the Hamilton soundtrack, I find myself continually moved by this lyric. Total strangers on the island of Nevis, took up a collection which sent 19 year old, orphaned, Alexander Hamilton to New York for an education. And the rest, of course, is history.
I was reminded of this lyric when the Jewish Federation organized their 2nd annual Supplies for Success drive and volunteers packed 1,000 backpacks with school supplies for low-income children here in Bergen County.
Here at the Bergen Volunteer Center, we get to see every day how the kindness of strangers makes a difference.
We are proud to turn caring into meaningful action. Join us and learn more.
