Nancy Hutchinson and her husband found themselves out west this winter in the name of supporting soldiers from Door and Kewaunee County. The Hutchinsons filled up their truck and then some during the journey, which saw them go to places like Colorado and Arizona to pick up much-needed items for Adopt A Soldier Door County from businesses that wanted to help but could not afford the postage to Wisconsin. Hutchinson says even though the donated items will benefit soldiers that grew up hundreds of miles away, the businesses she spoke to were grateful someone was doing so much.
Adopt A Soldier Door County is in need of personal toiletry items, socks, t-shirts, and laundry pods for the several hundred boxes the organization sends out every year.
