As a preventative measure related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Volunteer Center will host the annual WPS Volunteer Awards on Thursday, August 20, as a virtual event. We believe in continuing to recognize volunteers and the good work they do to support our community. See below for registration information.
The Volunteer Center of Brown County is pleased to again host the community’s largest event recognizing the impact volunteers have on our community! Erin Davisson and Tom Zalaski, of WFRV-TV Local 5, will once again be our emcees. This year, our event will be in the form of a Zoom meeting (8:00-9:00 a.m. CDT) on August 20.
Made possible by event sponsor Wisconsin Public Service, along with the Greater Green Bay Community Foundation and our eight generous award sponsors – American National Bank, Aon, Constellation, The George Kress Foundation, Georgia-Pacific, Green Bay Packers Give Back, Schreiber and UnitedHealthcare – this event celebrates volunteers and highlights the work they do to assist nonprofits in our area to fulfill their missions. As in 2019, the award amounts will be $1,000 for recipients and $500 for the runners-up that they can donate to the nonprofit organization of their choice.
Please join us and hear all the volunteers’ inspiring stories! To receive information on how to join the Zoom meeting, please register here.
