Students, faculty and staff can register online for Intersection on May 7 and give one day of service to help others and make a difference in our communities.
The campus community will join other volunteering families, church groups and businesses for a full day of service that will benefit 15 service agencies, nonprofit organizations and projects in Naperville, Aurora, Plainfield, West Chicago and Bolingbrook. Volunteers can choose where they want to serve and will work alongside members of the organizations and local residents. Visit OneIntersection.com to register.
The Intersection day of service begins with registration and breakfast at 8 a.m. in Wentz Concert Hall and a brief program at 8:30 a.m. Volunteers will serve at one of the 15 sites from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. with a celebration event and light dinner at 3 p.m. at Harvest Bible Chapel in Naperville. Maps, directions and lunch at each location will be provided. Cost is $10/individuals, $25/families and $5/students; costs go toward project supplies and meals.
“This year’s Intersection is the largest to date in the number of volunteers and organizations we’ll serve,” says Whitney Roberts, assistant director of ministry and service and coordinator of the event. “Between the North Central community, Harvest Bible Chapel, Grace Pointe Church and others, we anticipate around 400 to 500 volunteers to join the effort.”
