Guzmán and Leadership Green Bay team organizes collection for UW-Green Bay’s Campus Closet

Director of Student Life Claudia Guzmán and her Leadership Green Bay team recently organized a collection for the UW-Green Bay Campus Closet.

Donations from Leadership Green Bay

“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.

Craver, Leadership Green Bay encourage girls to combat bullying, find the kind

Eric Craver, External Relations Director for Outreach and Adult Access and UW-Green Bay representative for this year’s Leadership Green Bay class, is inviting campus and community to help “find the kind” through an essay contest and subsequent celebration aimed at standing up to bullying and celebrating kindness in our area. Craver’s Leadership Green Bay group has teamed up with the Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes to coordinate an essay (girls ages 10-12) and video (girls and women ages 13-18) contest that invites young people to share the importance of taking a stand against bullying and working toward making our community a kinder place. Girls do not need to be involved in the Girl Scouts to enter the contest, for which submissions will be accepted through Friday, April 25. A May 21 gala at St. Norbert College will bring contestants together to recognize winning entries and celebrate kindness.
