What We Do
The Boiler Volunteer Network helps students, student organizations, faculty, and staff find community engagement and service opportunities in Tippecanoe County and beyond. If you or your fraternity, sorority, cooperative, or student organization wants to get involved in volunteering email us or come to our office in Stewart Center, room G4.
Please also visit the United Way website which connects volunteers to agencies.
Project Move Out is May 2 – 6th. At the end of the school year, you are certain to have things that you don't want to pack up and take home. If you don't want it (and it is still in usable condition) don't throw it away, give it to us (at the Purdue Armory) and we'll pass it along to low-income families who can benefit from it. Items such as: Clothing, fans, microwaves, furniture, futons, mini-refrigerators, small electronics and appliances, food, school supplies, toys, unopened hygiene items, bikes, and just about anything else can all be donated. As long as it is still in useable condition, we appreciate your donation. It makes reusing and recycling easy!
We will accept items in Purdue Armory on May 2nd and 3rd from 9:00 – 4:00 p.m. May 4th and 5th we will receive items from 8:00 – 12:00 noon. May 6th we will receive items from 9:00 – 4:00 p.m.
Volunteers are needed to help unload trucks and sort donated items at the Purdue Armory. Shifts are two-and-a-half hours in duration. To volunteer, please fill out the form at https://purdue.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_0CblYyxmtBlDX5X. The form requires volunteers' names, email addresses, campus phone numbers, and the shift for which they are volunteering.
Those who wish to volunteer for more than one shift should contact Sarah Vaughn at firstname.lastname@example.org. Requests to volunteer for multiple shifts should include the dates and times of the shifts desired. Shift details can be found at the sign-up website listed above.
