Kewaunee County Emergency Management Receives Additional Donations
LUXEMBURG, WI – Kewaunee County Emergency Management continues to receive and distribute donations of personal protective equipment from local businesses to support the community during the COVID-19 crisis.
The latest two businesses that are lending a helping hand during this difficult time are Fermented Nutrition and N.E.W. Plastics Corp. in Luxemburg.
“The donations speak volumes for the community that we have in Kewaunee County. This is a time that supporting each other is needed most, and Kewaunee County Emergency Management is grateful to be assisting with the coordination of this effort,” said Tracy Nollenberg, Director of Kewaunee County Emergency Management.
Fermented Nutrition, which has manufactured nutritional feed ingredients for dairy farmers since 1973 in Kewaunee County, has donated a 55-gallon drum of hand sanitizer.
“We are so pleased be part of the community team that made this happen,” said Brant Windham, Plant Manager at Fermented Nutrition. “We appreciate the opportunity to do our part in helping slow the spread.”
And, N.E.W. Plastics Corp., which has been a leader in sustainable plastics technology since 1968, has donated 600 plastic bottles and caps.
“N.E.W. Plastics Corp. is happy to be able to help keep our first responders and health workers safe during this very unusual time in our country. These individuals go to work every day to make sure the rest of us are taken care of. This is just a small way of us helping these heroes go home safely each day,” said Mike Rekitzke, President and CEO of N.E.W. Plastics Corp.
Kewaunee County Emergency Management has also collected a donation from Agropur, which included sixteen boxes of nitrile gloves, six cases of lab coats, four gallons of hand sanitizer spray, and some polyethylene aprons for emergency response efforts.
