While restaurants are helping fill the void on struggling families’ tables, businesses in Door and Kewaunee Counties are stepping up their efforts for people serving on the frontlines. In Luxemburg, Agropur donated gloves, lab coats, hand sanitizer spray, and aprons usually reserved for its cheesemakers to the efforts of Kewaunee County Emergency Management. With its home build likely delayed this spring, Door County Habitat for Humanity donated its stock of N95 respirator masks to Door County Medical Center. With many businesses and organizations either closed or operating under restrictions, Door County Habitat for Humanity Restore Manager Megan Dietz says this is a great time for local businesses to stand for each other.
While the giving spirit is good, Door County Medical Center has asked the public to not drop off donated items like gift baskets, food, and homemade masks to any of its facilities without explicit written permission as it works to contain the COVID-19 outbreak.
