Members of the Sturgeon Bay Police and Door County Sheriff’s Departments look to deliver a lot more than butter burgers and frozen custard next Wednesday. For the third year in a row, the two departments will collaborate with Culver’s of Sturgeon Bay to promote the Lights of Christmas of Northeast Wisconsin campaign. Started by a Green Bay radio station five years ago, the efforts have grown to encompass over 20 Culver’s locations. Sturgeon Bay Police officer Brandon Shew says the tips collected and the proceeds donated by Culver’s go to make the holidays brighter for families in need.
Shew says they have been able to raise approximately $3,000 each of the last two years. Unlike past years, the law enforcement members will only be bringing food and good cheer to cars picking up food through the drive-thru during Culver’s hours of operations.
