Door County’s Adopt-A-Soldier Program has been working on a new initiative the past couple of months to financially assist local disabled veterans. Adopt-A-Soldier Door County’s mission is to send care packages to local troops in Door and Kewaunee Counties year round as well as provide financial assistance to local veterans in need. The non-profit also aims to help with procedures that aren’t military service-related such as paying in full for several vets to get dentures. The program’s founder and President Nancy Hutchinson, clued doorcountydailynews.com in on a few of the ways they’ve helped out.
Hutchinson also says veterans and interested donors can gather more information and be part of Adopt-A-Soldier’s mission by visiting the Adopt A Soldier-Door County Facebook page or adoptasoldierdoorcounty.org. Hutchinson also encourages those who know a Door or Kewaunee County high school student or other county resident who has recently enlisted in the military to have that service member give Hutchinson a call at (414) 333-6648.
