Caulk of the Town

Saturday, September 30 is the date for 2017!

Caulk of the Town is a one-day, community-wide home weatherization event. It’s neighbors caring for neighbors, neighborhoods, and housing. Start at 8 am and you’re finished before 1 pm–a great half-day of making a difference with neighbors and our community!

This year, NEAR is teaming up with Indy Do Day to make Caulk of the Town even better than before.

View (and print or share) our Caulk of the Town Information Sheet.

We’re looking for volunteers — individuals and teams of 4 to 7 volunteers.

We are ALSO looking for Near Eastside houses to weatherize!


We’re looking for individual volunteers and volunteer teams to come together, roll up your sleeves, and weatherize a Near Eastside home. No experience/expertise necessary. We give you a t-shirt, lunch, and all the tools and supplies needed to make a difference on this day.

We’re looking for owner-occupied or rented houses to weatherize. Is it yours? Or, to you know of a neighbor who needs this service? Please click here to complete and submit our online form┬áto get the process started. Or, download and print our Home Weatherization Application. If the house is rented, written permission from the homeowner for weatherization will be required.


We’re looking for sponsors who, for $200, can supply all the materials and tools needed for weatherizing a house. With your house sponsorship, we’ll add you name/logo to the t-shirt, social media, and promo material for the event. If you can offer in-kind tools and weatherization supplies, we’d love to talk with you, too. View our Caulk of the Town sponsorship opportunities and then contact Kelli Burnett.
