Here are the upcoming philanthropy events that GSA will be hosting! We’ve got lots of good things coming up this semester and we need your help! More details will follow about each of them.
Tuesday October 30th, 3-4 pm: Hanna Community Center (in
Lafayette); helping kids with homework (2000 Elmwood Avenue,
Lafayette, about a ten minute drive from campus)
This is a great opportunity to help inspire kids to want to keep
learning! It sounds like they would love all the help they can get, so
we may be doing more with them in the future. Look for more details .
Saturday November 10th, 9-2pm: Purdue Winterization (meet at
Purdue); prepping yards in the community for winter. See details here: https://www.purduewinterization.org/ We will be helping local residents clean up their yards to prepare for the winter. Registration for our group is now open! If you want to join, click “Volunteer Registration” and select ABE GSA when asked about your group. We’ll be doing the first wave, so come at 8 am if you want breakfast (I think you can come a little later if you don’t care) and they do serve lunch. Also, we meet on-campus and go from there so don’t worry about rides.
November 1-December 8: Toy drive! Give a child a toy for
Christmas! Collection spots will be set up around departmental areas.
Here’s a survey!
It seriously can be done in one minute or less, and it would really
help us know how we can help you help other people. Please take it!
Email Jenny Stevens with any questions! firstname.lastname@example.org
