Giving Tuesday is a day when the world gives together. On this day, you have the power to make a difference for children and families throughout our community. We have set a big goal for the day of raising $10,000 and Bank First is matching the first $2,500 contributed!
Help us support the empowerment and economic advancement of women and their families here in Green Bay, when you give!

It’s very creative, and it’s a great way to learn. If you’re a kid and you’re thinking about how you want to be when you grow up and you have no idea, it helps you decide what you want to be. Like you go to the art garage. Maybe you’re really talented at art, maybe you want to be an artist when you grow up. It can help you figure out the talents that you never knew you had. I think it’s really wonderful.
I began volunteering in the Women’s Closet about 9 years ago. I choose to volunteer at the YWCA because I felt it was an opportunity to make a difference in someone’s life and empower local women.
In the closet we take the donations and use them to create a welcoming, attractive area for women to select a wardrobe of clean, stylish clothes to wear for an interview, a new job, or an existing one. We see women leave feeling confident and prepared to succeed in the workplace.
After many years of searching, I finally landed my dream job as a Support Broker through Community Horizons LLC. I heard about the YWCA upon graduation from UW-Green Bay and have been utilizing their services since. If it wasn’t for the friendly assistance and services within the Women’s Empowerment Center, I wouldn’t have gained the confidence to be in the rewarding the position I am in now, helping members in the community achieve their goals.
