Adopt A Soldier Door County is back out in the community and has started operations on a pair of Summer home projects. On Wednesday, the organization teamed up with Habitat for Humanity to get the ball rolling on replacing David Gessert’s sewer drain pipe, main water line, and doing sidewalk repairs. Gessert is an Army veteran who served in the 1950’s. Adopt a Soldier will be covering funds for the project up to $6,000. The Veterans’ Service office will take care of the remaining balance.
The organization is also helping to re-side a veteran’s home this summer. These two projects along with helping a veteran get his teeth replaced are the three major causes Adopt a Soldier will help fund this year. With cancellations to fundraisers two years in a row, Adopt a Soldier President Nancy Hutchinson says they will stick to these projects only for this year in an effort to be careful with funding.
The organization will also be getting help from Coast Guard personnel, Peninsula Property Services, and Drain Pro for labor.
