Bangor Humane Society Yard Sale 

For the past 6 years Bangor Humane Society volunteers have raised money to purchase needed shelter supplies during their annual Memorial Weekend Yard Sale. Held at Mount Hope Ave in Bangor the sale included everything from books and clothes to furniture and exercise equipment. Volunteers say “In this economy, who doesn’t love a good yard sale?” According to the shelter’s website the shelter has run over capacity by up to 35% for seven out of the past 12 months, and this has put great stress on their already limited resources.Items sold at the sale were collected from the community and local businesses. Officials say this is the last time they will hold the Yard Sale, they plan to try something new next year.
