Your generosity may have helped a World War II veteran in Sturgeon Bay get a new roof this summer. Adopt-a-Soldier Door County recently wrapped up the project after having already replaced a sewer drain and water main there for the 7th Street home. They also teamed up with Door County Habitat for Humanity, who repaired the veteran’s sidewalks. Adopt a Soldier Door County Founder Nancy Hutchinson and the organization’s committee was eager to help him out with a new roof as well.
After being completed on Monday, the roof withstood its first big test, surviving Monday night’s storm. Their last house project of the summer is underway. Adopt-a-Soldier has started working with Door County Habitat for Humanity and members of the Coast Guard, putting siding on another veteran’s house. That project is called “Ryan’s House,” and was made possible by a grant procured from Home Depot.
