Volunteer Center Annual Events

WPS Volunteer Awards logo

Each year, the Wisconsin Public Service Volunteer Awards celebrate the often-unsung people who do so much for others in our area. There are many stories of kindness and compassion, from humble acts of service to leaders spearheading large-scale efforts — all of these make a difference.

​Volunteer Center of Brown County’s Annual Golf Classic

Through funds raised at the annual Golf Classic, the Volunteer Center of Brown County is able to continue our mission of “creating a stronger community by engaging volunteers to support nonprofit partners.” In 2023, it took place on July 12, at Royal Scot Golf Club in New Franken.

2022 Golf Outing - golfers and carts

This fun event assists us in helping thousands of people in the Brown County area during the year, through the volunteers we enlist and the non-profits we partner with.

Annual Community-Wide Volunteer Expo

Attendees discover ways to help serve their community and find volunteer opportunities that are just right for them. Area nonprofits can get the word out about their organizations and their volunteer needs. This is one of the many ways we build connection between nonprofit organizations and potential volunteers and, in doing so, strengthen our community! In 2023, our 6th Annual Volunteer Expo took place on September 19 at the Stadium View Banquet Hall in Green Bay. To learn more, click here.


Rake Up Green Bay

Rake Up Green Bay logo

This fall event (formerly called Make a Difference Day) now focuses solely on raking, and it assists area community members who need our help the most. The initiative targets those in our neighborhoods who are unable to do this seasonal task for a variety of reasons. Individuals and teams of people come together to rake leaves, helping folks remain independent in their homes and keeping our community beautiful!

In 2023, Rake Up Green Bay service dates run from October 21-November 12. For more information, click here.
