UMaine Food Drive to Remember 9/11 

Students at the University of Maine found their own way to remember the September Eleventh attacks.Folks from the Division of Student Affairs organized a food drive in remembrance of the terrorist attack.They say they want to focus not on the tragedy that occurred, but on the way members of the community joined forces and supported each other.For three hours, staff members accepted donations on non-perishable foods and personal care items.They’ll be distributed to the Black Bear Exchange…it’s a community initiative that operates a food pantry and thrift shop to serve UMaine and surrounding towns.Folks who took part say they hope the spirit of giving carries on well after the food drive ends.
