With Gov. Evers’ Safer at Home order in effect, Door County Habitat for Humanity (DCHH) has closed its offices and the ReStore to the public and suspended building activities – but that does not mean the organization has stopped serving the community.
DCHH found a supply of N95 respirator masks in the safety equipment normally used by its home-build volunteers, and with the home build delayed, DCHH has donated the masks to Door County Medical Center. Once the danger of COVID-19 has passed, the masks will be replaced to help home-build volunteers to be safe when working on the next Habitat home.DCHH is trying to make other resources available to those in need as well. The hats, mittens, gloves and scarves provided by Just Door County have been moved to a water-resistant bin outside the ReStore so that anyone who needs something can access it. DCHH has also set up a “Little Free Pantry” to accompany its Little Free Library.
