SOUTH BEND -

The University of Notre Dame says its $400 million Campus Crossroads project will reap benefits for local nonprofit organizations. The school says the stadium enhancements will increase opportunities for organizations to earn money by volunteering at concession stands during football games.

The university says nonprofits have earned nearly $1.7 million over the past five years working at concession stands during home football games. Levy Restaurants, which manages concessions for the university, says between 650 and 700 volunteers worked at concession stands last season. About 40 nonprofit groups, including school groups, athletic teams and churches, are expected to participate in the program this year.

Among the groups that have benefited from the program is Northridge High School's Science Olympiad team. The group says the team used funds they raised volunteering at concession stands to buy 3-D printers to create robots for their robotics competition.

Another example is Ancilla College's soccer team, which will use funding to travel to North Carolina over the fall to prepare for the season. Head coach Justin Crew says the trip will allow the team to live together for a week and build a "family culture." The team says it earned nearly $7,000 working concessions at football, basketball and hockey games. Ancilla's cheerleading team raised a similar amount, which they used to fund a trip to the national championship competition.

The Campus Crossroads project is the largest construction project in Notre Dame's 175-year history. It includes new luxury and wider bowl seating options, a larger video board and updated concession stands at Notre Dame Stadium. It also involves three new facilities built on the historic venue.
