Adopt a Soldier helps a soldier smile

Unlike the care packages they send out multiple times a year, Adopt a Soldier Door County was able to make one veteran smile without packing a single box. A Vietnam veteran had his teeth pulled over a year ago and applied through Adopt a Soldier Door County to get a $1,000 grant to help pay for some of his new dentures.  The organization decided to cover the entire expense, which on average is about $1,500. Nancy Hutchinson from Adopt a Soldier Door County says it was something her committee felt they had to do.

From the candy bars packed into boxes to providing interest-free loans to Coast Guard members affected by the government shutdown earlier this year, Hutchinson says providing the support would not have been possible without the generosity of the local community.
