CHAMPAIGN -- The University of Illinois and surrounding communities are getting ready to come together to do some good and they could use your help. Starting April 5 is National Volunteer Week.

To kick it off, UI's Office of Public Engagement is holding its Second Annual Day of Service. It's a food-packing project which puts together meals for the Eastern Illinois Foodbank.

They're looking for 1,000 volunteers. The Office of Public Engagement hopes to pack 147,000 meals. It's 1,000 meals for every year it's been around.
