Neighbor to Neighbor of Door County Receives Grant for Emergency Room Loan Program

The Door County Community Foundation has awarded Neighbor to Neighbor Volunteer Caregivers of Door County, Inc. a Sustainability Grant from the John and Nell Herlache Community Impact Fund and the Elizabeth “Betty” Lawrence Memorial Fund. This grant supports their Emergency Room Loan Program.

The Emergency Room Loan Program makes Door County safer for the vulnerable populations by enhancing safety services available to them on evenings, nights, weekends and holidays through a collaboration with the Ministry Door County Medical Center’s Emergency Room. Certain pieces of durable medical equipment will be loaned to those being discharged through the Emergency Room at times when Neighbor to Neighbor is typically closed.

“Offering quality medical equipment for those in financial need is an invaluable facilitation program offered by Neighbor to Neighbor,” said Linda Laarman, board member of the Door County Community Foundation. “With the Emergency Room Loan Program, the organization is able to assist Door County residents at times when Neighbor to Neighbor volunteers are not available to provide services.”
