Northern Illinois University student Crystal Perez, part of Kappa Omicron NU, rolls up sod to expose dirt for the laying of a walkway that would allow accessibility to the new garden on the side of the Sycamore Public Library Saturday morning. Perez was one of over 1,200 volunteers from NIU that worked on over twenty different sites throughout the community for the annual NIU Cares Day. Danielle Guerra -
