Donors aid loan program for unpaid Coast Guard members

Donations have increased for an interest-free loan program to aid U.S. Coast Guard personnel in Sturgeon Bay.  Adopt a Solider Door County announced the loan program this week to help nearly 100 Coasties who are not getting paid during the government shutdown.  Executive Director Nancy Hutchinson says her group is using funds donated from a charity golf outing last summer at Horseshoe Bay Golf Club and other cash on hand.  She says others who've heard about Adopt a Soldier's efforts have stepped up to help.



The interest-free loans will be available starting the week of  January 14th.  Hutchinson says all Coast Guard personnel in Sturgeon Bay were asked to apply for the loans so they can get money when needed.  More information can be found at
