Roof sit-in raises $22,000

The eleven hours United Way of Door County Board President Peter Kerwin sat on the roof of Starr Realty proved to be well worth the time as the organization raised over $22,000 on Thursday. Kerwin reprised his fundraiser effort from over a decade ago to help raise funds towards the United Way’s goal of $650,000. Between 7am and 6 p.m., Kerwin took phone calls and hoisted buckets of money to help reach $20,000 before he came down to warm up after a day’s work. Kerwin said earlier in the day how important it was to support the efforts of the United Way.

Donations continue to come in afterward to end with a total of approximately $22,000. United Way of Door County Executive Director Amy Kohnle says they will be able to do a lot of good with the money that was collected.

The United Way of Door County is beginning the grant review process this month to see how big the needs are in the community ahead of 2021.
