Donors responding to emergency

The Door County Emergency Response Fund continues to answer the calls of the community in big ways since it was reactivated last month. Since the Door County Community Foundation made an initial contribution of $15,000, it has seen its joint effort with the United Way of Door County grow to over $300,000. Its most recent distributions to Door County Medical Center, Scandia Village, Lakeshore CAP, We Are Hope, and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeastern Wisconsin are helping to fund not just the medical needs of the community during the COVID-19 pandemic but also the emotional concerns as well. Door County Community Foundation President and CEO Bret Bicoy said earlier this month that even with the generosity already shown, more donations will likely be needed.

With the stimulus checks already in bank accounts in some cases, the Door County Community Foundation is encouraging people to donate at least a portion of it to support those that are struggling.
