Corporate Days of Service

Bergen Volunteers can help you create a fun memorable day of service for your employees. Let us show you how you can make a strong impact in the community through our Corporate Days of Service!

Coordinating large group or corporate days of service requires considerable time commitment, project management and the awareness of community needs. Over 30% of businesses in Bergen County are nonprofits. Without the resources, finding a charitable organization that requires the specific help you’re looking to give can be a challenge!

We handle all the details including agency relations, project development and management, marketing and recruiting materials, coordination of meals and snacks, and photos and press releases.



Business success has always depended on an engaged workforce. When people feel motivated, they perform better. Successful businesses understand the significant impact community involvement can have on employee engagement.


The Business Connections Council consists of likeminded corporate professionals who actively encourage employee community engagement.

Through the Business Connections Council you have the opportunity to network with peers, share best practices and join your company's efforts to the collective efforts of other corporations in the area.
