2023 Volunteer Expo

September 19

3:00-6:00 pm, Stadium View Banquet Hall, Green Bay

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

Participants enjoyed a cash bar and refreshments as they networked with the nonprofits and learned more about the valuable work they do, while discovering ways to strengthen our community by giving of their time and talents.

For 50 years, the Volunteer Center has been serving local nonprofits and creating a stronger community by engaging volunteers to support nonprofit partners, and the Volunteer Expo is one of the ways we form these vital connections.

2023 Rake Up Green Bay

This fall event mobilizes volunteers to provide the important service of raking the yards of 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.

Volunteers will perform their service individually or in teams. Once volunteers are matched with homeowners, the volunteers will contact them to arrange a mutually agreeable day and time between October 21 and November 12 to complete the service.

Join This Volunteer Effort!

Here’s what you need to know:

  • Volunteering will occur on the date you and the homeowner(s) agree upon.
  • Each team or individual will need to fill out and submit the volunteer application. Forms are due by September 25.
  • You can form a team or you can volunteer individually (individuals may be placed with other volunteers).
  • We will match volunteers with homeowners in early October and, once matched, we will notify you with details and next steps.
  • You are responsible for contacting your assigned homeowner(s) to arrange a date and time for raking to take place.
  • The Volunteer Center can provide rakes, if needed.
