Winterization is a community service project in which students from Purdue University assist in preparing the yards and homes of the elderly and disabled in Tippecanoe County for winter.


Winterization 2020 will take place on the morning of Saturday, November 7th. 

Volunteers will rake leaves, clean gutters, wash windows, trim shrubs, and do other winterizing tasks for the residents. Conversation with the residents is also important, this year it will be done through PHONE, not face-to-face. Many are unable to leave their homes regularly and have few visitors. This year we are hoping to have over 400 residents who are eagerly awaiting for us to “Winterize” their homes.
