Door County showing community strength in numbers

Sister Bay/Liberty Grove Fire Chief Chris Hecht says he is not surprised that the county’s response to supporting each other during the COVID-19 pandemic has left some volunteers with little to do. Over 550 people have signed up to volunteer their time with the Door County Emergency Support Coalition, which has been spearheaded by the Door County Fire Chiefs Association. Filling up grocery carts for homebound shoppers, organizing meal trains for the less fortunate, and working polling sites are just some of the wide variety of things the volunteers have been asked to do. Hecht says even if you are not doing as much to help as you would like to, don’t stop trying.

Hecht also says people in need of assistance should not be afraid to ask either. Approximately 3,000 volunteer hours have been logged by the Door County Emergency Support Coalition, a number Hecht believes is much lower than reality.
