Local residents rally to help those in need during virus scare

KALKASKA — Several Kalkaska County residents are having a truly positive reaction to the coronavirus.

Rather than hoarding supplies, a newly formed group, the Kalkaska Response Team, has recently formed to help those in need, so that they can better cope with the challenges posed by the spread of the virus. 

The effort reportedly started with Tom Steiner, who decided last week to turn his garage outside his family’s home at 1831 Twin Birch Road into a food pantry, of sorts.

“I just started it because people needed stuff,” Steiner said. “There’s no questions asked.

“If you need help, come get what you need. If you have some extra goods laying around, come donate and drop them off.”

Steiner said, when starting to collect donations and set up the pantry in his garage, he didn’t even think of what other resources might be available. All he knew is there were people in need and he wanted to help.
