Four organizations are teaming up to turn stuffed dogs into dollars for youth grants for Door County middle and high school students. The Door County Crime Prevention Foundation and Leadership Door County are donating 500 dogs to the Door County Community Foundation and the Door County Service Club Coalition to inspire youth to use their skills and talents for an idea promoting safer communities while possibly earning a $500 mini-grant. Door County Community Foundation President and CEO Bret Bicoy says the two grant programs, Youth as Resources and Youth in Theater, show you can make a difference, no matter the age.
Bicoy hopes to get all middle and high school students in Door County involved with the project, which has its first application deadline on October 2.
