Union Members 'Blanket' Brown County, Wis.

Union members are working to keep area residents warm this winter with Brown County United Way and the Greater Green Bay Labor Council Community Services Committee. The two groups are hosting the second annual Blanketing Brown County drive, collecting new and gently used blankets for distribution to area shelters and agencies. Blanketing Brown County begins today and continues through Jan. 29.

In addition to sites where the public can donate blankets, a number of companies and organizations have allowed for internal employee collection at work locations.

Last year’s inaugural drive, sponsored by the Greater Green Bay Labor Council Community Services Committee, collected more than 800 blankets for distribution to 23 Brown County programs serving homeless and low-income men, women and children.

Public drop locations include Brown County library branches, Green Bay fire stations and Shopko stores.
