Dump Truck Collects More Than a Ton of Food 

Catherine Pegram

More than a ton of food is on its way to families in need, thanks to help from the community and a huge dump truck. Lane Construction put out a challenge to those at the Festival of Lights parade in downtown Bangor Saturday to fill a dump truck full of food for area pantries.Parade goers came through and donated 25-hundred pounds of non-perishable goods. This is the first year workers at Lane Construction set up the food drive. They tell us it seemed to fit the theme of the parade, “Joys of the Season”, since giving back is one of those joys.
