Volunteers in Indianapolis are getting involved with a big community service marathon.

It's called "Around the Community-Around the Clock" and includes projects spanning 94 hours.

More than 100 members of the Junior League of Indianapolis are participating in the 13 projects around the city, totaling more than 520 volunteer hours.

The Junior League is an organization of women that empowers and trains women to improve the community around them. 

Volunteers cooked breakfast for the residents at the Ronald McDonald House Thursday morning and put together freezable casseroles for Ronald McDonald residents.

Michelle Study-Campbell, president of the Junior League and head of the Ronald McDonald House, said the casseroles will help feed the 58 families who stay at the house every night.

"When your life is turned upside down and your only focus is your child, to have someone else to take care of the comfort and care of home and to have a place to lay your head and a decent meal to eat is really what helps our families get through day to day," Study-Campbell said. "They're just so incredibly grateful that the volunteers from the community come in and do this for the house and for them so that they don't have to worry about that."

This just one of several projects going on over next several days. The community service marathon ends at 6 p.m. Sunday.

She said there's some other projects going on at place like Central Library, Riley Hospital for Children, and Peyton Manning Children's Hospital.
