In the past few years, ABE-GSA has tried to become more involved in the Purdue, West Lafayette, and Greater Lafayette Area communities and has provided our students/members with opportunities to engage with the community in service events.

We typically appoint a Philanthropy Chair by asking new graduate students in the Fall if they are interested, so that new students have an opportunity to get involved and participate in ABE-GSA Board Meetings.

We have been involved with Restaurant Hope which you can read about here: RH_paper, Detrash the Wabash, “Reverse Trick or Treating ” at IU Arnett and St. Elizabeth’s , Wabash Sampling Blitz, St. Matthew’s Soup Kitchen, and Purdue Winterization.
