Update November 20, 2012:
The Pajama Program is being run by the Honors Program and the Alpha Chi, Psi Chi, Delta Mu Delta, and Kappa Delta Pi Honors Societies. They are seeking new children’s pajamas and new children’s books. For health reasons, the pajamas must be new. The program seeks to help children who are cold and frightened by giving them warm pajamas and a bedtime book to ease their fears. The drive will take place on December 5 and 6 and donations can be dropped off at either College Hall of the Student Center on Liberty Street. These donations will be accepted from 9:45 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Update November 14, 2012:
On October 29, 2012, Hurricane Sandy hit New Jersey and other areas of the US. Many people lost loved ones, homes, businesses and access to resources and services. While we all felt the impact of the devastation, others including members of the Bloomfield College community suffered unimaginable losses.
In an effort to support our campus family and surrounding communities, the College has created the Jersey Strong-BC Cares Hurricane Relief Project. The planning committee for the project consists of concerned students and staff members from Student Affairs and Enrollment Management.
Some of the recent project relief initiatives include the following:
Since Hurricane Sandy, we have discovered that a number of our students, faculty and staff have expressed how they were directly impacted by the storm. Bloomfield cares deeply about the hearts, experiences and needs of the community. If you have a need at this time, please contact either Rose Mitchell, Associate Dean for Student Affairs, ext. 1245 or Jamie Shahin, Enrollment Services Coordinator, ext. 1220.
