With the United Way of Door County about halfway to its $650,000 goal for its annual campaign, Board President Peter Kerwin knows what he needs to do. The organization announced last week that Kerwin would sit on the roof of the ERA Starr Realty building on December 3rd until he can help raise $15,000 for the campaign. It is not the first time he has done it, noting he has learned the importance of dressing warmly and having some friends come by and visit. With the work the United Way of Door County has done during the pandemic so far and the demand for its services expected to grow in 2021, Kerwin says the time spent on the roof will be well worth it.
Kerwin will begin his roof sit-in at 7 a.m. on December 3rd where passersby can either donate in person or via the phone and online. Things are already looking up for Kerwin on that day with an expected high of about 32 degrees and no precipitation in the forecast.
