Medical experts and pediatricians are worried about a new rash of mental health crises among transgender kids, due to the dozens of bills states have introduced to criminalize gender-affirming health care.

Why it matters: Tens of thousands of trans youth are at risk of losing health care from the proposed bills, the Williams Institute estimates.

UWGB Campus Cupboard and Closet
 
The UWGB Campus Cupboard and Closet is a service that provides food, cleaning, clothing, kitchen and some household items to students who need a little support to help them as they complete their educational goals, or to not take on a second or third job so they can focus on their studies. An average of 45 students use the Cupboard each semester. Some of the students have unusual expenses in which they need support one time, others have limited or no family support and need food, cleaning or school supplies because they have $5 left in their savings after buying gasoline or bus tickets to get to work. Each story is different, but the need is present. https://www.uwgb.edu/cupboard/items-needed/
 
Cyber Works
 
Is your string of holiday lights half lit? Do you want to help keep exercise equipment, office furniture, farm equipment, florescent light bulbs, rechargeable batteries and household batteries out of landfills?  Cyber Works in Green Bay will take these items and more!
 
ANYTHING with a cord!
 
Questions? Call 920.497.2667
