CRS Rice Bowl

Diocese of Green Bay distributes grants for immigrant and refugee programs

ORB-English-Logo-lgFour Northeastern Wisconsin organizations were selected by the Diocese of Green Bay to receive funding to support their outreach programs to immigrant and refugee communities.

Funding for grants to the organizations in Brown, Door, Kewaunee and Winnebago counties came from the CRS Rice Bowl collection, an annual program of Catholic Relief Services.

Four receive grants

Grants were awarded to:

  • Door County Memorial Hospital, Sturgeon Bay, $2,432 to offset the expenses of its free dental clinic. Seventeen percent of its clients are from the immigrant community.
  • The Hispanic Resource Center of Door and Kewaunee Counties, located in Sturgeon Bay, $4,344.20 for emergency assistance to the Latino community, cultural programming, and administrative expenses.
  • Literacy Green Bay, $2,928 to purchase educator and tutor materials, and for tutor workshops and special assistance to students in need.
  • LEAVEN, Menasha, $2,525 for special transportation, housing, and utility assistance for the immigrant community it serves.

Rice Bowl provides funds

CRS Rice Bowl, a program of Catholic Relief Service -- the official international humanitarian agency of the U.S. Catholic Church -- is an annual Lenten initiative held in parishes and schools in the Diocese and around the nation.

CRS Rice Bowl seeks to foster solidarity with the poor around the world based on our call as Catholics to pray, fast, and give alms during Lent.
