With 11-years behind it, Adopt a Solider Door County is a success. The program sends care packages to local men and women in uniform who are serving away from home. Adopt a Soldier wants to build on that success. Its biggest fundraiser is coming up on August 4th at Martin Park in Sturgeon Bay. This year people who want to help, but don’t have the time to get the goodies to put in the care package have a more convenient option. Director Nancy Hutchinson explains how “Adopt a Box” works.
“Adopt a Soldier” spends about $10,000 yearly to send care pages to about 193 service members from Door and Kewaunee Counties. So no donation is too small.
