Volunteer Center Annual Events

WPS Volunteer Awards logo

The annual Wisconsin Public Service Volunteer Awards were held virtually again in 2021, this year on April 22, and we celebrated the often-unsung people who do so much for others in our area. There are so many stories of kindness and compassion, from humble acts of service to leaders spearheading large-scale efforts — all of these make a difference.

The Volunteer Center of Brown County is proud to honor those who selflessly give of their time and talents to help improve our community. Award amounts are $1,000 for recipients and $500 for the runners-up, which is donated to the nonprofit organization of their choice. Youth awards are in the form of scholarships.

Make A Difference Day

A national day of service with a local impact!

The Coldwell Banker staff

Each year, hundreds of people join together and help senior citizens and others who need assistance with seasonal tasks to prepare for the upcoming winter months. Teams of people come together to rake leaves, wash windows, clean gardens and put away yard furniture.

You and the Volunteer Center — making a difference in our area!

In 2021, Make A Difference Day was on October 23, but volunteers can serve whenever it’s convenient. For more information, click here.
