Parent Organization: Community Service

As part of our adoption program, we partner Purdue students with elderly individuals in the community to have regular visits, where students get to know their “adopted grandparent.” Students will visit with their grandparents, play cards, watch movies, assist them with everyday household chores, or just call to talk and check up on them.

We also host monthly socials where the Adopt-a-Grandparent Club visits as a group to the retirement communities and assisted living homes. This provides opportunities for students to meet and get to know the residents, possibly pairing them together as part of the adoption program. A few of our social events with the residents include game nights, baking, and trivia challenges. Our club typically has two socials a month at the various retirement communities and a meeting the first Wednesday of each month at 6 PM.

Our dues are $8 per semester and $14 per year.

We hope you consider joining Adopt-A-Grandparent Club!
