A local radio station is helping new mothers in need.The Lighthouse Radio Network, which includes Bangor-based FM radio stations 88.5 and 105.7, is collecting diapers through the first of February. The diapers will be given to pregnancy resource centers in Bangor, Ellsworth, Houlton, and Saint Stephen, Canada. “These moms come to these crisis centers in a crisis situation.” Said Joe Polek from Lighthouse Radio Network. “They’re worried and they’re stressed out, and they don’t know what to do. And so these centers are able to offer them help and hope. And hopefully we can do that too, with offering them these diapers.”Diaper drop off locations include The Growing Place located on Broadway and Hammond Streets in Bangor.The Acadia Christian school in Ellsworth.The Greater Houlton Christian Academy. And at Border Town Subz in Calais.They say gift card and cash donations are also appreciated.
