GREEN BAY - Brown County government is teaming up with the Green Bay Packers and the City of Green Bay to participate in the #LightItBlue campaign.
This initiative is a global effort that supports health care workers and emergency responders who are on the front line in the fight against the spread of COVID-19. “We owe these brave men and women a debt of gratitude for tackling this deadly pandemic head-on,” says Brown County Executive Troy Streckenbach. “This campaign is an opportunity for Brown County to say thank you to health care professionals and emergency responders who are risking their own health to save people living in our community.”
The Brown County Courthouse will be lit up in blue as a show of support and gratitude for those essential workers caring for our community.
The U.S. will turn into a beacon of blue at 8 p.m. local time on Thursday, April 9.
This campaign was born in the United Kingdom, where more than 130 buildings, bridges, and landmarks participated.
