Kids show support for Coast Guard families

On one of the coldest days of 2019, Liliahna and Willa Snyder of Sturgeon Bay chose to do their part to warm the hearts of local Coast Guard families. The sisters, 11 and 8 years old, chose to set up a cocoa and doughnut stand to raise funds for Sturgeon Bay’s Coast Guard members still affected by the ongoing government shutdown. It especially hits close to home for Liliahna, who is friends with the daughter of a Coast Guard member. No matter how it is done, she says it is important to support the families.

The Coast Guard is the only military branch with members not being paid during the government shutdown due to being under the umbrella of the Department of Homeland Security, not the Department of Defense.
