The Door County Emergency Support Coalition is already making a huge impact in the community despite being just a week old. In its infancy, the coalition has already recruited 294 volunteers and completed 64 community assists. Their efforts include assisting in absentee voting efforts, delivering food on the Meals on Wheels program, and taking sanitizing materials to Washington Island. While the numbers and the amount of activity could be staggering to some, Sister Bay/Liberty Grove Fire Chief Chris Hecht says he is not surprised by the support the coalition has received.
While he is happy with the response early on, Hecht reminds everyone that responding to the community’s needs during the COVID-19 outbreak is a marathon and not a sprint. We have information posted below highlighting the achievements of the Door County Emergency Support Coalition and how you can be a volunteer for one of their non-contact positions.
