Operation “Wisconsin Joy” is heading to Fort McCoy to help refugees

Local News

GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV)- A local pastor in Green Bay enlisted the help of his congregation, local churches, and people of the community in an effort to help the refugees currently seeking help at Fort McCoy here in Wisconsin.

On Monday morning, a truck full of donated items were taken to the military base by those at Savior Lutheran Chruch

Our Savior Lutheran Church created an Amazon wishlist on their website with instructions on the type of items requested. Items ranged from baby supplies like bottles and shampoo to sunscreen, feminine products, backpacks, and clothes for all ages and genders.

The church explained that most of the refugees coming to the state would only have the clothes on their backs, so organizers stressed the necessity of donations.
