People with mobility challenges will now find it easier to scoot around Door County. That's because Neighbor to Neighbor is beefing up its fleet of knee scooters for loan to those who need them to get around. The Door County Community Foundation awarded a $6,500 grant to the local non-profit group which provides medical equipment on a short-term basis. Ann Bennett, Executive Director of Neighbor to Neighbor, says with eight knee scooters in Sturgeon Bay and two each in Northern Door County and Washington Island it was hard to meet demand.
The grant was made possible with help from the Marge and Mike McCoy Family Foundation, the David and Nancy Danis Fund, the Kerley Family Foundation, and the Eleanor R. Dean and John L Gosney Fund. Neighbor to Neighbor now has 30 knee scooters available for loan.
