Schoolchildren, faculty and staff alike, warmed by 'Laffle'

The fourth annual UW-Green Bay Laffle (a raffle-like charity drive that manages a few laughs as well as cool prizes and a feel-good glow) provided hundreds of items that will help local schoolchildren in need. Continue reading “Schoolchildren, faculty and staff alike, warmed by 'Laffle'”

Pick up the pace on donations to 'Laffle' and children in need

Our friends in the Registrar’s Office say they need a very strong couple of days’ worth of generous donations to make the fall 2011 Laffle a success. They have a nice array of fun prizes, but now’s the time to get serious about contributing items to the  “pair and a spare” campaign to direct much-needed items to local schoolchildren. So, if you’re in the vicinity of your favorite discount store in the next day or two, stop in and pick up clothes or school and hygiene items (there’s a list online) or just donate cash. Monday morning (Nov. 21) is the deadline. Call ext. 2126 with questions.

Beginning Oct. 31, Return of the ‘Laffle’


The good people in the Registrar’s Office are soon to launch “Laffle 4,” the latest in their fun series of charity drives in which UW-Green Bay pitches in to support a particular cause or segment of the community. This fall’s drive begins Monday (Oct. 31) and ends exactly three weeks later. For the second consecutive fall, donation will go to the “pair and a spare” campaign to get supplies to local schoolchildren. The concept is that, when purchasing clothes or school and hygiene items, you will remember that social workers in the Green Bay public schools report many disadvantaged children are doing without. For details on what to buy or how to donate, snapshots of some of the raffle prizes and, for newcomers to campus, a campus-specific definition of the made-up word “laffle,” click here.
