You can utilize your local sheriff’s department to help provide hurricane relief to Louisiana Sheriff’s employees and their families impacted by Hurricane Ida. The Door County and Kewaunee County Sheriff’s departments are joining the other 70 Sheriff’s offices around Wisconsin partaking in the Sheriff's Adopting Sheriffs initiative. The initiative is designed to bring relief to Sheriff’s Department employees who’ve had to leave their families to help others during disasters.
Badger State Sheriffs’ Association President, Sheriff Nate Dreckman, said that too often lost in the mix of the disaster is the fact that Sheriff’s emergency responders themselves suffer major personal and family loss. The Sheriffs Adopting Sheriffs initiative typically solicits funds from Sheriff’s personnel and their families but has been expanded to the public because of the great need for help left by Hurricane Ida. The Door County Sheriff’s Department stated that you can make a donation by mail or by dropping off your donation at their Office. The Door County Sheriff’s Office is located at 1201 South Duluth Avenue in Sturgeon Bay.
