Director of Student Life Claudia Guzmán and her Leadership Green Bay team recently organized a collection for the UW-Green Bay Campus Closet. The collection was announced to the whole group on Oct. 8, 2019, and the donations were delivered to the Campus Closet on Friday, Nov. 15, 2019. The team needed three vehicles to transport all of their items.
Guzmán was thrilled that her team selected the Campus Closet as a recipient of goodwill.
“I’m really proud that my team selected UW-Green Bay’s Campus Closet for our collection drive,” says Guzmán, “and so grateful to our entire Leadership Green Bay class for their generosity! It was a great way to raise awareness of the needs of our students while also helping to stock the closet with clothing.”
The Leadership Green Bay Class of 2020 consists of 47 participants from local businesses and organizations. The large group is divided into several smaller teams, and one team a month is tasked with organization a collection on behalf of a local nonprofit agency.
The Campus Closet exists to help any member of the UW-Green Bay with clothes. There is also a Campus Cupboard which provides food and basic necessities.
