The increase in postage rates has made it more expensive for non-profit organizations to do their good work. Forever stamps went up two cents last week while other services went up as much as several dollars. Those pennies add up to a lot when you are people like Nancy Hutchinson from Adopt-A-Soldier Door County, who mails out over 800 packages annually to local members of the Armed Forces.
Adopt-A-Soldier Door County is currently collecting items and monetary donations for its Easter box campaign. Hutchinson has been collecting items and sending care packages to troops from Door and Kewaunee County since she started the organization in 2008.
