The Door County Sheriffs Department is providing other counties with much-needed hand sanitizer from a large stock it previously ordered. That supply comes from a Wausau area distillery that began producing sanitizer before distillers in Door County began to do the same. Sheriff Tammy Sternard decided to proceed with the 20-gallon order. So, Chief Deputy Pat McCarty went to pick up the supply on Monday with three of the four five-gallon buckets going to sheriff's offices in Calumet, Manitowoc and Winnebago counties.
While delivering the hand-sanitizer made for a long workday for McCarty, he says he was glad to bring such much-needed supplies to other departments in need.
