Lights of Christmas inspires community

It was the kindness, not the frozen custard that was the sweetest treat served during Wednesday’s Lights of Christmas Program at Culver’s in Sturgeon Bay. This year, the community Culver’s, and Door Stop Amoco donated $3,623.29 to the cause that buys gift cards and other items for community members in need.  Personnel from the Door County Sheriff’s Department, Sturgeon Bay Police Department, Door County Emergency Services, and Sturgeon Bay Fire Department all took part in the event greeting people as they picked up their food at the drive-thru window. It was the first time Sturgeon Bay Police Officer Eric Jose was able to help out during the event, but he has seen the impact the donations have had during his years on the force.




Fellow Police Officer Brandon Shew reflected on a past experience when one boy saw him using the money to buy Christmas presents for a single mother and her child and the generosity that ensued.




Over the last three years, the Lights of Christmas Program event in Sturgeon Bay has raised approximately $10,000. Shew says people who missed out on stopping by can still donate at the Sturgeon Bay Police Department.
