Quick-action community improvement proposals submitted by organizations in three Wisconsin cities, Green Bay, Ladysmith, and Sheboygan, have been selected to receive the final AARP Wisconsin “Small Dollar, Big Impact” grants of 2022.
The City of Sheboygan is creating sort of a city hall on wheels.
Chad Pelishek, Director of Planning and Development for the City of Sheboygan said this unit will attend planned events and host unannounced neighborhood pop-ups “where a cook-out with police, a pickleball match with the mayor, ice cream sundaes with alders, or an impromptu card game with our firemen are all possible.”
Meanwhile, the Salvation Army of Greater Green Bay will use its $1,000 grant to make technology upgrades for Older Adults Technology Services (OATS) workshops.
The grant will enable the organization to purchase mobile devices and utilize the materials and curriculum offered through the OATS program to help area residents learn how to use their own technology more effectively and efficiently.
