Brown County United Way and the Greater Green Bay Labor Council Host their Annual Blanket Drive
New blankets will be collected and distributed throughout January.

BROWN COUNTY — Wisconsin winters can be brutal to individuals who do not have the privilege of staying warm. From January 1-27, Brown County United Way and the Greater Green Bay Labor Council will collect new blankets for those in need. Gently used will be accepted as well. Collection sites will be located throughout Brown County, including local fire and police stations.

Both organizations will co-host a special drop-off event at the Johnsonville Tailgate Village in Lambeau Field’s parking lot on Saturday, January 14, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. People are invited to come out and drop off, preferably, new blankets from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Agencies will pick up sorted blankets from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

All blankets collected throughout the month will immediately be distributed to community partners.

Monetary donations will be accepted through Brown County United Way’s website at browncountyunitedway.org.
