Berkeley Heights is a town where everyone is a part of a large family. On multiple occasions the town has come together to help each other out. For instance, when the town's favorite supermarket employee was seen walking to work from 3 towns over because his bike had broken down, the people of Berkeley Heights raised over $500 to get him a new bike.
