At registration, volunteers can choose from 18 different service projects; many are family friendly and all run from 9 a.m. to noon. Cost to participate is $5 per person and is 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, painting, running a fun fair with special needs children and their families, helping women at risk, doing landscaping and cleaning and much more. 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 Intersection as a collision of people and community needs that produces not only short-term results but long-term relationships.

"Intersection is one of the best ways the college and community work together to create meaningful impact," she says. "Over the years, we've been grateful for the connections made because of Intersection service projects."

Volunteers don't need special skills, just willing hands and a heart to serve. To register an individual, family, friends or a group, visit 2014intersection.eventbrite.com.
