When Students Give Back West Lafayette!
Boiler Blast is an annual event at Purdue University where students give back to the community by volunteering to do odd jobs for the residents of West Lafayette.
The New Chauncey Neighborhood residents ask the student volunteers to help with area clean up, spring yard work, window cleaning, and even some light construction work for the Unitarian Church.
The 2008 event was a great success for the students, Purdue, and the New Chauncey Neighborhood. Many thanks to all who organized and participated in the event!
Bags of trash at main intersections throughout New Chauncey were a common sight before noon as the NCNA Clean Sweep powered by Purdue’s Boiler Blast was in full swing.
