Peter Kerwin, board president of United Way of Door County, will rise to just about any challenge to help the organization meet its goal of raising $650,000 this year.
Proof of this is Kerwin’s decision to sit on the roof of the ERA Starr Realty building at 14 S. 3rd Ave. in Sturgeon Bay on Dec. 3, beginning at 7 am until he raises $15,000 toward this year’s goal.
“The services that United Way funds and the role that United Way plays in our community are needed now more than ever,” Kerwin said.
“Peter has always played an active role in our campaign,” said Amy Kohnle, United Way of Door County’s executive director.
To support Kerwin, visit him during his roof sit at the corner of Third Avenue and Michigan Street, and learn how to safely make a pledge or donation from street level. Donors and pledgers may also call the United Way office at 920.746.9645 or contribute online at unitedwaydc.com on Dec. 3 to count toward his goal.
“A donation of any size truly makes a difference in the lives of many,” Kerwin said.
As of Nov. 20, Kohnle said the organization had raised $318,545.49, or 49 percent of its goal for the campaign, which officially ends Jan. 7, 2021.
United Way of Door County exists to build a community in which all people can achieve their full potential through education, financial stability and healthy lifestyles. The funds currently being raised will be invested in nearly 30 nonprofit organizations in 2021 to help Door County residents.
