Are you a person with a LGBT or related identity who has ever served in the US Armed Forces?
We invite you to participate in a study focusing on your health behaviors and life experiences as a Veteran with a LGBT or related identity.

The goal of the Health for Every Veteran Study is to better understand the experiences of Veterans from all backgrounds and promote their health and well-being, including those with LGBT or related identities. We are especially interested in hearing the diverse voices within our communities.

The study is being conducted by researchers at the VA Puget Sound Health Care System. It consists of completing a confidential, web-based questionnaire every 9 months for approximately 2 years (for a total of 4 questionnaires). All research activities are completed online, with no in-person visits required.  For more information, please go to https://healthforeveryvet-lgbt.questionpro.com.

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
 
You can drop of these items off at: 844 Willard Drive Ste 5 Monday-Friday 8am-6pm & Saturday 10am-4pm
