“We want to thank the Green Bay Innovation Group for your donation and supporting St. John’s Ministries annual Restoring Hope Gala. The event was again successful, raising over $190,000 to help provide shelter services and daytime resources to those experiencing homelessness in our community. The mission of the non-profit organization is to respond to those experiencing homelessness or housing instability in a way that honors their dignity, restores hope and creates lasting change.”
“The event kicked off with a few raffles that saw winners receive a 5-night Mexico trip and Solo fire pit and truck load of wood. Following the prayer and meal, six different live auction packages brought excitement to the room. The high bidders won a week’s stay in a private cabin in Minocqua, Canadian fishing trip, 7-night stay in Mexico, to go along with a handcrafted bench made by guests at St. John’s Ministries.”
“The highlight of the evening was the Restoring Hope Gala video featuring John, who had stayed in shelter during past seasons. He is now employed, housed, and has his construction business back. John was in attendance and received a standing ovation for his success.”
“The Restoring Hope Gala also included a message from Executive Director Jesse Brunette and the vision going forward to shelter people during the cold winter months. The night ended with a speech by former long-time St. John’s Ministries leader Lexie Wood, who talked about the humble beginnings of St. John’s Ministries and its commitment and growth to helping each person who is on the streets cold and lonely.”

The Green Bay Innovation Group would like to thank Olivia Durocher Project Development Specialist and Andrew Stoub Environmental Manager for an outstanding presentation and virtual tour at the Green Bay Packaging Green Bay Mill on October 12, 2023. It was an outstanding education for all the attendees, with questions and interaction. Green Bay Packaging’s new recycled paper mill is the first new paper machine built in Wisconsin over the past 30 years. Construction began in August 2018. The Green Bay Packaging Mill uses recycled corrugated containers (OCC) and mixed office paper to make paper packaging and boxes. The 100% recycled paper mill supplies roll stock internal to GBP divisions and other companies across the country. The Green Bay Mill Division no longer directly discharges, nor pulls water from, the Fox River. Instead, GBMD utilizes alternative water (water captured from NEW Water’s discharge) to offset freshwater consumption. Wastewater from the facility’s effluent treatment plant is discharged back to NEW Water for final treatment. The project will have an expected economic impact of over $257 million in the Green Bay area with an investment of over $500 million dollars, representing more than four years of planning. The new mill is a fully integrated paper mill using 100% recycled raw material to manufacture linerboard and medium packaging products. With advanced automation, few physical hands touch the paper to control the papermaking operations – supporting safety as a priority!
Other Project features include:
- The machine uses 100% recycled furnish with speed of 1,200m/min.
- Using biogas generated from the mill’s effluent treatment plant.
- Shutdown of the coal fired boilers and a switch to super-efficient natural gas boilers.
- Installing high efficiency screen, agitators, and lighting.
- High efficiency economizer to preheat the chilly water being pumped to the boiler drums.
The project is the single biggest project in the history of Brown County.
Green Bay Packaging is headquartered in Green Bay, WI. and employs over 4,500 team members, operating thirty-eight facilities in sixteen states. Green Bay Packaging is a third-generation family-owned business with major investment and commitment to the Green Bay community.
