Welcome To The Salvation Army of Brown CountyVisit The Salvation Army Thrift Store

The Salvation Army provides a variety of services and activities to help our older (age 50+) adults of Brown County stay active, independent, and socially connected. Enrollment occurs on an annual basis. Once enrolled, seniors can participate in as many or as few activities as they choose on a monthly basis and simply need to register for the activities that they want to be involved in.

There is a $5.00 annual cost to receive the monthly newsletter by mail. Transportation is provided to and from most of the monthly activities. The transportation cost is $2.00 per event roundtrip.

Grocery Shopping - Grocery/discount shopping occurs several Mondays each month. There is also Thursday grocery shopping offered a couple times a month for seniors from 2 specific housing complexes on the east side of Green Bay, Trail Creek and Woodland Park. The only cost for this activity is the transportation charge which is $2.00.

Bridge Club - This group meets every Tuesday in the senior room from 1:00-4:00 pm. There is no transportation provided for this activity. The bridge club offers all skill levels from beginners to advanced. There is no cost to play bridge, just a weekly donation towards the snacks and coffee. All bridge players must register ahead of time.

Exercise - There are several weekly opportunities for seniors to exercise.
  • Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays there is senior volleyball in the gym. There is an annual fee for this activity.
  • Tuesdays & Thursdays there is Walk with Ease open gym walking. This program operates September through May.
  • Wednesdays just before the senior lunch there are arthritis exercises in the senior room.
Lunches and social activities - Every Wednesday, lunch is served in the senior room at 11:45 am. Lunch is followed by entertainment, cards, bingo and/or special activities. The cost of lunch is $3.00. Transportation is provided for an additional cost for the Wednesday lunches.

Craft classes - Thursday is craft day. Dates and times change monthly. There is a minimal cost for the materials. Seniors make a simple and fun craft and take it home the same day!

Cooking class - The Extension Service provides cooking class the fourth Thursday of the month at 1:00 pm. Learn how to make healthy meals and snacks for one or two people. There is no cost to attend the cooking class. There are no cooking classes in July and August.

Bunco - Join us the second Thursday of each month from 1:00 to 3:00 pm for an afternoon of fun and fellowship! Bunco is an easy but exciting dice game. Give it a try, you might even win a prize!

Water Therapy - Register with the Cerebral Palsy Center for weekly water therapy. Then call the Senior Program if you need transportation to/from the CP Center. Transportation is only offered if enough people sign up for it. The group also stops for a light lunch after spending time in the pool.

Special outings and day trips - Are you adventurous? Then join the Senior Program for one of our many special trips and outings! You can visit a place in Wisconsin you’ve never been before, or go back to a favorite spot, or even go on a “mystery tour” in which the destination is known only to the staff and bus driver. You can also take in a Bullfrogs baseball game, a WaterBoard Warrior ski show, or a concert in the park or at the Meyer Theater. Dates, times and costs of these special outings vary so the best way to get the information is to refer to the monthly newsletter.

The Salvation Army Camp - Join us for Spring Fling, a one day trip to The Salvation Army Camp in May or sign up for a whole week of Senior Camp in August. There are many activities to do at the camp and lots of friends to share great times with. The Senior Program will provide transportation to/from the camp. Costs for these events vary so check the camp registration materials available in the senior room.

Hmong Elders Support Group - In conjunction with Catholic Charities, this group meets at The Salvation Army two times per month. There are both educational programs as well as trips into the community. Join in the fun and fellowship. Transportation and a translator are provided.

Many of the Senior Program activities have a small fee, however, The Salvation Army does not want the cost of any activity to keep a senior from participating. Contact the senior services director to discuss fees if these are a hardship.

Register for all Senior Program activities by calling (920) 593-2362. Dates and times may change so please call ahead.

Contact Karrie McGuire, Senior Services Director at (920) 593-2362 or e-mail to learn more about the Senior Program.
