The event, organized each year by the Boiler Volunteer Network (BVN), gives Purdue students an opportunity to give back to the community by providing volunteer service.


The students have a good time as they give neighboring areas a little TLC. It is a big win for everyone.

This year students tackled a large hillside of leaves, the Day Lilly beds in the New Chauncey Neighborhood, collection of scrap concrete and debris from neighborhood ally ways, and of course the favorite "window cleaning" along with dozens of other jobs and tasks requested by the City and neighbors of Purdue.

Window cleaning is always a favorite request of residents.

The students either walk to the job sites or hop the Purdue Bus and get dropped off nearby.

The students help the City, residents, neighborhoods, the Lilly Nature Center, and various other parks and locations.
