Thank you to our 2021 Volunteer Sponsor!
Make a Difference Day
Each fall, volunteers throughout the Green Bay area and around the nation take part in service to improve others’ lives. This involves volunteers and residents working together to make our community a beautiful place to live. This year, Brown County United Way and the Volunteer Center of Brown County are teaming up to help even more people in the Downtown, Navarino, Whitney, and Joannes Park neighborhoods get ready for the winter months!
With your support, volunteers and teams of volunteers will help seniors and others who need assistance with typical fall outdoor yard projects such as raking, trimming bushes, washing exterior windows, putting away yard furniture. Volunteers will be matched with the homes receiving services. The official kick-off date is October 23, 2021; however, service can take place whenever it is convenient for the volunteers and the residents. Participants make these arrangements based on their own schedules.
We are also looking for homes that would like to receive these outdoor services. If you are a senior citizen, or someone that needs assistance, please consider requesting service. If you can provide tools such as rakes and trimmers, please indicate this on your service request form.
The selfless giving embodied by Make a Difference Day strengthens our neighborhoods and highlights the spirit of our community. If you’re looking to give back to your community or if you need outdoor assistance, please click on the buttons to fill out the registration form. For questions, please contact Jill Sobieck, firstname.lastname@example.org
