The fall 2021 SOUP presenters are:

  • Community art wall presented by Brooke Hafs. To help make creativity flourish in Grand Green Bay, On Broadway is looking to install a community art wall in the Broadway neighborhood for artists or community members to come practice their art on a large scale. It would be another way to bring public art to the community, which helps create clean, safe and attractive spaces for people. The micro-grant funding would go towards the construction of the freestanding wall and allow On Broadway to source white paint to create a cool space on the wall.
  • Iridian Moon presented by Jesse Villwock. Iridian Moon is a free walk-in resource center held Monday nights at The Artemystic; the center provides a safe space for LGBTQ + high school teens in the Grand Green Bay area. In addition to a safe space to connect with others, the center educates teens about healthy relationships, STI prevention, consent issues, self-advocacy, and confidence building. The micro-grant funding would be used to continue providing refreshments and resources for adolescent girls, including menstrual care products, literature, movie nights and craft supplies.
  • New Leaf Garden Blitz presented by Kim Diaz. New Leaf Foods, Inc., has supported the Grand Green Bay region with programs that educate consumers and improve access to healthy food, especially in inner city neighborhoods. Since 2014, the Garden Blitz project has been promoting the benefits of the urban vegetable garden by installing planters to help families grow their own food. The micro-grant funding would go towards supplies and equipment for the construction of planters.
  • Services League Back to School Store presented by Heather Milbach. Hosted by the League of Green Bay Service at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, the Back-to-School Store is a unique service event offered to children from low-income families in Brown County. The event provides school supplies children need to start the school year at no cost to families. Micro-grant funding would be used to purchase and stock the school supply inventory for the event.
  • The winning project’s micro-grant is funded by the Volunteer Center of Brown County and Alive & Kickin ‘Pizza Crust and by participant registration. Dinner is provided by Bay Motel & Family Restaurant, Biebel’s Catering & Rental, The Booyah Shed, The Marq Catering & Banquet and White Dog Green Bay; bread is supplied by Great Harvest Bread Company.
