April is National Volunteer Month

Posted on 4-11-2024

National Volunteer month in the United States takes place in the month of April. This month is dedicated to honoring all of the volunteers in our communities as well as encouraging volunteerism throughout the month.

The theme for this year’s National Volunteer Month is “Celebrate Service.”

In the Greater Green Bay area, there are many wonderful programs and initiatives that owe their presence and effectiveness to the generosity and dedication of volunteers — Here are just a couple for you to consider:

The Volunteer Center of Brown County

The Volunteer Center collaborates with corporate, religious, educational, group, and individual volunteers to address community needs. They connect people with service opportunities and provide leadership for strategic community initiatives.

Each year, the Volunteer Center matches thousands of volunteers with hundreds of local nonprofit partners to best utilize time and talent. Learn More Here

The American Red Cross

The American Red Cross Northeast Wisconsin Chapter serves communities across the following counties in Wisconsin: Waupaca, Outagamie, Brown, Kewaunee, Door, Waushara, Winnebago, Calumet, Manitowoc, Fond du Lac, Sheboygan, Oconto and Marinette. In addition, this Chapter serves the Oneida Nation and three counties in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan – Dickinson, Menominee and Delta.

During National Volunteer Month, the American Red Cross celebrates the thousands of blood and platelet donors who make our lifesaving mission possible each and every day. With no substitute for blood and no way to manufacture it, volunteer donors are essential for hospital patients in need of transfusions.  

As a “Thank You”, those come to give blood through April 28th will get a $10 e-gift card to a merchant of choice, plus be automatically entered for a chance to win one of two $7,000 gift cards. Details Available HERE.
