With local troops in mind Adopt a Soldier Door County sent sixty-six care packages to soldiers living all over the map. Adopt a Soldier Founder Nancy Hutchinson says the organization typically plans to send out approximately one hundred care packages, but at this time of year some soldiers' living arrangements are up in the air.
This has been a yearly tradition for Adopt A Soldier since 2008. The organization which centers its mission around building care packages and sending them to soldiers from Door and Kewaunee County typically sends out eight a year for various holidays. Hutchinson says the group has scaled back for this year due to financial constraints.
The packing took about two and a half hours and every donation that was sent in was used for the packages.
