2021 Make A Difference Day

Each fall, volunteers throughout the Green Bay area and around the nation take part in service whose purpose is to improve others’ lives. This involves helping seniors and others who need assistance with typical fall outdoor yard projects such as raking, trimming bushes, and washing exterior windows. The official date this year was October 23, but, though some volunteers served on that day, service can take place whenever it is convenient for the volunteers and the clients. Participants make these arrangements based on their own schedules.

The selfless giving embodied by the Make a Difference Day ideal strengthens our communities, and the Volunteer Center of Brown County once again coordinated local efforts, in partnership with the Brown County United Way and the Aging and Disability Resource Center of Brown County.

This year, nearly 200 volunteers participated over several weeks, and over 50 homes in our area received assistance!

Make A Difference Day Kickoff Event

A brief kickoff ceremony was held in front of the Volunteer Center of Brown County the morning of October 23, where volunteers heard from Mayor Eric Genrich, met other volunteers and the Volunteer Center staff, enjoyed coffee and treats, and got motivated for the service that’s so valuable to our community!
