Annual Main Events

Prepare Affair 2015 is Sat. Nov. 14! 

What Is Prepare Affair?

Prepare Affair is a volunteer event that brings together more than 3,000 volunteers to help low-income, elderly and disabled homeowners prepare their homes for winter. One of the largest one-day events in the tri-state, volunteers at Prepare Affair will perform winter preparation activities that will make a huge difference for elderly homeowners with physical limitations. For more information, please read our brochure below.

When is Prepare Affair? This year’s event will be on Saturday November 14th. Online registration will open Sept. 1 through our website.  PWC Volunteer T-shirts will be on sale prior to the event and the day of the event for $5, and are not required to participate.

What kinds of services are performed during Prepare Affair?

Services range from raking leaves and cleaning gutters to other small winter preparation tasks.

How do I volunteer? Volunteering is easy! Simply register online or contact our volunteer department at (513) 351-7921. You can put together your own crew and be a crew leader, join an existing crew, or volunteer independently.

What is a Crew Leader?

One person in a large group is designated as the Crew Leader to act as liaison between PWC and the group.  Responsibilities include recruiting volunteers, attending a coordinator meetings at PWC, and communicating with the homeowners.  The deadline for crew leaders to sign up is October 30 (but the earlier the better!). Contact Aaron Grant at 513-351-7921. 

Buy a PWC Volunteer Corps T-Shirt

Though PWC is no longer able to offer free t-shirts as part of our events, we will have PWC Volunteer t-shirts available for $5. You may purchase them online through our website or by phone, and you may pick them up at our office or have them shipped to you for the cost of postage. PWC Volunteer t-shirts are not required to participate, though they are pretty sharp!
