ALDPES's Community Impact

January 16th, 2017

This semester, the ALDPES website will have a different theme or highlight each month. The theme of this month is all the good ALDPES has done on the campus and in the community around Purdue. Last semester, we were so excited to be able to help out the Women’s Shelter in Lafayette. We were able to donate a lot of blankets to them, which will totally help during these cold winter nights! We were also able to volunteer at Boo at the Zoo last semester. We had a great time with all the kids and helping out with Halloween fun! It was great to be with the kids of the community and be part of the community around us! Check back soon for updates on our future philanthropy and community events!
