On Oct. 4, Door County Medical Center (DCMC) will hold a Mission and Values Week Silent Auction to raise money for the Ministry Fund.
The Ministry Fund provides people with shelter, clothing, durable medical equipment, car repair, fuel/utilities, transportation, medications and dental bills. Through the resources made available from employees and other donors, this fund has been able to fulfill more than 5,000 requests for assistance since the fund was created.
“We don’t always see it every day, but people are desperate – falling through the cracks. This program is vital to our community and the members it serves. It can mean the difference between a home and homelessness, sick or healthy, and even life or death,” said Katie Graf, DCMC social worker.
The silent auction will be held Oct. 4, 7 am – 2 pm in the DCMC conference center. Winning bids will be announced at 2:30 pm and the winners are asked to pay for and claim their items between 2:30 – 3:30 pm. Special arrangements can be made for those individuals unable to pick up their items until the following day. For more information visit dcmedical.org.
