Polar vortex affected the poor

The extreme cold of last week had more of an effect on the poor people of Door County than you might think. Those who work part-time jobs with no benefits may have not had their work open due to the conditions. School was canceled for most of the week, so if they were able to work, childcare needed to be found. Heating bills will be higher and people who live in older, drafty homes need to run the heat a little hotter. Joe Krebsbach, the Director of the Door County Department of Human Services, says they have caseworkers who have checked up on the most vulnerable people to see how they dealt with the conditions.

 

 

Krebsbach is urging people to help out and have more empathy for the less fortunate of Door County even after the polar vortex has now passed.
