Month of Service

Make a positive impact through volunteerism this September!

Join your coworkers or fellow Purdue alumni in making your community stronger with Purdue’s Month of Service! This is a great opportunity for a team-building activity with your department or to accomplish your service component in your club/network.

Boilers across campus and the globe will serve together in their respective communities, volunteering their time and talent to help children, animals, the environment, the arts, and other worthy causes in the month of September.
