Response fund distributes nearly $36,000

Six local groups will be able to serve the community better after the Door County Emergency Response Fund made its first charitable distribution on Thursday. The fund distributed nearly $36,000 in aid to cover expenses for food, shelter, and other needs for the Boys and Girls Club of Door County, the Washington Island Community Health Program, the Door County Meals Cooperative, HELP of Door County, the Door County Medical Center Foundation, and the Door County Fire Chief’s Relief Fund. Door County Community Foundation President and CEO Bret Bicoy knows more public charities and faith-based organizations are struggling at this time meeting the area’s needs. He has been encouraged by the groups indirectly working together to support the community as a whole.

Bicoy says they will make other distributions in the coming weeks as they continue to raise money for the Door County Emergency Response Fund, which has raised close to $135,000 since it was relaunched last month.
