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

Our philanthropy chairs, Julia & Josept, have really done a great job of organizing opportunities to give back to the Greater Lafayette community this fall. From reverse trick-or-treating at local hospitals and clean-up of West Lafayette through Winterization, we have ended the semester with two days of volunteering at the Care & Share soup kitchen of Lafayette. Here are some photos!
ABE has been busy giving back to the community lately! Several graduate students participated in the annual “Winterization” put on by Purdue students. From the website: “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.”
Here are some photos!
Additionally, several ABE grads donned costumes and went “Reverse Trick-or-Treating” to pass out candy and play games with children at the local hospitals, IU & St. Elizabeth. Great work by our Philanthropy Chairs Julia & Josept in organizing these opportunities for us to give back to the community!
