LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Two international students from Purdue joined a person from Lafayette and delivered meals to people in need.
They were paired through Purdue's Host A Boiler program. The program pairs international students who are not able to travel home, with locals for a holiday activity.
Katy Dietrich said when she signed up to host, she let them know she planned to spend her day volunteering and the girls were excited to help.
"Seeing the smiles on their faces because they're just so excited. I have Ting Ting helping me navigate and Jade is in the back counting deserts and so everybody has their little jobs," said Dietrich.
Ting Ting and Jade are both from China. They said they wanted to take this time to get to know the community better and spread Chritsmas cheer.
"Last year I recieved a lot of love from the community and this year we are trying to do something meaningful and give back to the community," said Ting Ting.
