Pop-Up Donation Drive
AUGUST 25, 2021 - SEPTEMBER 2, 2021
We have partnered with Green Bay Community Church through Circles Green Bay to host a pop-up donation drive! Beginning August 25th, members of the community can bring items for donation to the west lobby of Green Bay Community Church during business hours, Sunday, 8:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and Monday through Thursday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and a special Saturday drop-off on August 28th only from 8 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.!
We are honored to be partnering with Green Bay Community Church and Circles Green Bay to link arms to support families on their way to thriving. When you donate items to the ReStore, you're making an impact in the community by keeping items out of the landfills, and all proceeds from ReStore sales go directly to the Greater Green Bay Habitat for Humanity Homeownership Program to build homes right here in Brown County.
Be sure to check out a list of items that the ReStore can and cannot accept by going to our ReStore page.
Homeownership Information Application Meeting
AUGUST 15, 16 OR 18, 2021
Greater Green Bay Habitat for Humanity has opened the 2021 application meeting to the public. People interested in learning about the Homeownership Program and its requirements can attend the informational meeting that will take place on September 15, 16 or 18, 2021 at the Brown County Library Auditorium. Attendees must RSVP online at www.greenbayhabitat.org/application_meeting.
Greater Green Bay Habitat for Humanity builds new construction homes in Brown County and sells them to individuals or families with a 0% interest mortgage. The Homeownership Program provides benefits to our Habitat Homebuyer(s) and the community. Habitat Homebuyers benefit from safe, decent, affordable housing while the community benefits from the redevelopment of neighborhoods and an increased tax revenue.
To learn more information and to RSVP, visit our Application Meeting page.
SEPTEMBER 22 and 23, 2021
Habitat for Humanity’s Veterans Build is a national initiative to provide housing solutions and volunteer opportunities to U.S. veterans, military service members and their families. At Greater Green Bay Habitat for Humanity, we build new construction homes and sell them to qualified Habitat Homebuyers with a zero percent interest mortgage.
The initiatives that Veterans Build supports are build, employing, volunteer engagement, education and honor. During She Served, we invite veterans to join us on the build site to help build a home for a fellow veteran.

Green Bay Packers Alumni Sporting Clays
OCTOBER 5, 2021
The Green Bay Packers Alumni Sporting Clays Event will take place Tuesday, October 5, 2021, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at The Woodfire Triple J Wing & Clay.
This year’s beneficiary, the Greater Green Bay Habitat for Humanity, brings people together to build homes, community and hope. Since 1987, they have built 124 homes adding $12.9 million to the tax base. Annually $2.3 million is spent with local suppliers and contractors. With the addition of the ReStore in 2009, over 9 million pounds of material has been diverted from landfills.
Please consider adding to the success of the event and Greater Green Bay Habitat for Humanity by registering a team at https://pckrs.com/alumnisportingclays. In return, you will receive one team of four interacting with celebrities at each station on the course, company recognition on signage displayed throughout the event, silent auction, gift per participant and more.
Please contact Amanda Wery at 920-569-7250 or firstname.lastname@example.org, if you have any questions. Your support provides a hand-up, not a hand-out through quality affordable housing to low- and moderate-income families in our community.
RePurpose for a Reason
NOVEMBER 4, 2021
We are pleased to announce that RePurpose for a Reason 2021 will resume in-person! The event will feature the annual silent auction featuring hand-crafted and DIY projects made locally. New this year, we will host the event at the ReStore where you will be able to visit the store, tour and bid on the auction projects, and enjoy a little entertainment.
We are looking for project makers for 2021 auction items, and we need your help. If you are a DIYer (anything from beginner to experienced), crafter, or you just love a good side project, we are looking for people like you! Our project makers channel their inner creativity, hunt through our ReStore for RePurpose projects, and comb through Pinterest to find ideas to make fun and innovative RePurpose projects. You can be a part of the fun by becoming a project maker! Here's how it works:
1. Create an item of your own. Do you have excess crafting or building materials around your home? Turn them into something fun and donate it to RePurpose for a Reason to be auctioned off during the event! To the right are a couple of hand-crafted projects from the past to inspire you.
2. Check Out an item or piece from the ReStore. Browse the ReStore for the perfect project(s) to check out, with a value of $70 or less. Take your item(s) home and "repurpose" them into something new! When your item is ready, bring it back to the ReStore to be included in the silent auction. Just make sure to bring it back at least two weeks before the event so we can catalog and image your masterpiece.
