The Door County tourism industry and local community worked together to collect 1,055 winter clothing items during the 8th annual Big Bundle Up Campaign. The campaign was led by the Wisconsin Department of Tourism and organized locally by the Door County Visitor Bureau. The Door County Visitor Bureau Welcome Center along with community visitor centers in Baileys Harbor, Carlsville, Door County North, Egg Harbor, Fish Creek, Jacksonport, Sister Bay and Sturgeon Bay all volunteered to participate in the campaign.
The Wisconsin Department of Tourism reported 31,041 winter clothing items collected at Wisconsin Welcome Centers and tourist information centers around Wisconsin.
Jen Rogers, communications & PR manager at the Door County Visitor Bureau, helped organize the collection for a second year. “I’m so happy to see the continued giving in this community,” said Rogers. “Locally, we have donated 5,310 items to Door County residents in need,” she said.
