Neighbor to Neighbor in Door County released statistics that highlighted the ways they greatly impacted the community in 2020. Although the number of people served was down just a bit due to the lockdown at the beginning of the pandemic, Executive Director Ann Bennett says they really kicked into high gear last summer once the state partially reopened. In 2020, Neighbor to Neighbor helped residents save over $450,000 in medical expenses and fifty-three volunteers donated 1587 hours to facilitate medical equipment loans, maintain equipment, serve as peer companions, and assist with special events. Though opportunities to assist were limited at times, Bennett says they found a way.
Neighbor to Neighbor will be celebrating their achievements in the July 27th annual meeting at the ADRC building in Sturgeon Bay. There they’ll also announce volunteer awards. As of Friday, Neighbor to Neighbor has an abundance of incontinent supplies to give away. To donate to the incontinent supplies or inquire about their availability you can call (920 743-7800. You can also RSVP to their annual meeting by calling the same number.
