Community Service

BSAC is committed to serving the greater Harlem and NYC communities through service projects, often in collaboration with the Morningside Area Alliance or Columbia Community Service. Please keep an eye on this page for announcements and further details about upcoming opportunities to give back.

Food Drive (Oct. 22 - Nov. 21):

BSAC invites staff to participate in our first annual Food Drive, in support of Broadway Presbyterian Church, a partner organization in the Morningside Area Alliance. We will be collecting non-perishable food items starting October 22. Donation locations are in Barnard Hall Lobby, Milbank Hall Lobby, and Diana Center Lobby. A list of preferred items may be found here. Our goal is to collect 500 items, and we hope you'll join us in giving back to the Morningside neighborhood during this holiday season!


Past Initiatives

A coat and clothing drive, conducted in partnership with Columbia Community Service, took place in Spring 2018. BSAC is thrilled to announce that the Barnard community donated 1,058 articles of clothing, which were distributed to the Riverside Language Program (serving new immigrants and refugees) and Cathedral Community Cares (a neighborhood clothing closet for the needy and those returning to the workforce). Thank you to all who participated!
