Break-In at Hands of Hope Thrift Store in Bangor 

Providing Christmas gifts for kids this holiday season in Penobscot County is going to be a lot more difficult for one program.The Bangor Thrift Store, Hands of Hope was broken into.Most of the proceeds from the store goes towards the Hands of Hope Christmas Program.They usually serve about 1,500 kids in more than 40 towns in Penobscot County.” The importance is the time of year they hit us. This time of year we do a lot of children. To pick this time of year for us to come out of this, it’s going to be a little tough. Plus doing the Christmas program, so we’re just kind of hoping that people reach out and bless us so we can bless others like we do every year.”Anyone interested in doing their part to help the program can call 852-0520.
