North Central College in Naperville invites community members to join in for the eighth annual day of service on May 3.
The event, called Intersection, begins at 7:45 a.m. Volunteers can choose one of two locations to gather and register: in Naperville in the lobby at Wentz Concert Hall, 171 E. Chicago Ave., and in Plainfield at Grace Pointe Church, 14210 S. Route 30.
At registration, volunteers can choose from 18 different service projects. All projects run from 9 a.m. to noon. Cost to participate is $5 and capped at $20 per family, which includes breakfast and lunch at the site. North Central College student registration is free.
Among the projects available are helping run a youth sports program, cleaning school playgrounds, serving at a food pantry, collecting food donations at local grocery stores and painting. Site locations are primarily in Naperville and Aurora, but also include West Chicago and Plainfield.
Whitney Roberts, North Central’s assistant director of ministry and service, describes the event as a collision: the collision of people and community needs that produces not only short-term results but long-term relationships.
