2022 Rake Up Green Bay

Announcing our newly reimagined Make a Difference Day event, now called Rake Up Green Bay!

This fall event, which will focus solely on raking this year, will assist the community members who need our help the most. Our goal is to target those in our neighborhoods who are unable to do this seasonal task due to a lack of family or friends in the area, a disability, limited resources, and/or financial constraints.

We are excited to continue partnering with the ADRC of Brown County, Brown County United Way, and UW-Green Bay. In 2022, we also welcome new partnerships with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Wisconsin, Greener Bay Compost, and On Broadway Inc.

Volunteers will perform their service individually or in teams any time between mid-October and mid-November. Once they are matched with homeowners, the volunteers will contact them to arrange the day and time to rake the lawn(s).


Check back later for photos of volunteers in action!

We will post them as service takes place. Thank you in advance to all the volunteers generously giving of their time to help members of our community!


Thank You, Sponsors!

2022 Volunteer Expo

Volunteer Expo logo

September 20

Resch Expo, Green Bay

This fun, family-friendly event was hosted by the Volunteer Center of Brown County and presented by Fox Communities Credit Union. It featured nearly 50 nonprofits and was a great opportunity to learn about opportunities in our area to give back (for potential volunteers) or for nonprofits to showcase their organizations and recruit and engage volunteers!

Participants enjoyed networking and conversation with a variety of local nonprofits, learned more about the valuable work the organizations do, and discovered ways to strengthen our community by giving of their time and talents.

Scroll to the bottom for a list of participating organizations.
