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 2023 will take place on the morning of Saturday, November 4th.
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. 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.
Resident and Volunteer registration for Winterization 2023 are both open! Follow the links on the right side of the page to sign up.
Winterization 2022 was a huge success! Thank you to the Leadership CREW and our over 1,500 volunteers for helping serve over 320 residents.
Winterization 2023 is Saturday, November 4th. Registration will open in late September.
If you are a senior resident of the Greater Lafayette, IN area and would like to be served, registration for 2023 will open in mid September!
