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 2019 will take place on the morning of Saturday, November 9th.
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, as 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.
10/31/19: We are still accepting sign-ups for residents and volunteers! Residents are encourage to contact us by Saturday, 11/2. Volunteer registration will remain open until 11/7 at 5:00 PM. Please encourage your friends to sign up by then. They can still register day of, but there is no guarantee we can place them with your group.
T-shirts are available to purchase starting today! If you would like a shirt, they are $10 and can be picked up at the Wesley Foundation at Purdue at 435 W. State Street. This is the building across from the Union with big, red doors.
