Manna Needs Help With Back-To-School Drive 

Manna has started signing people up for its back to school drive. Executive Director Bill Rae says he expects the need to great this year because of school department cut backs and a strained economy.The folks at Manna are handing out backpacks filled with school supplies. They’re asking people to drop off backpacks, calculators, notebooks and any other school supplies to their offices at 629 Main street in Bangor. Anyone looking for help can sign up for assistance at the same address, 629 main street, weekdays between 9:30 and 4:30.
