Household Items Collected for Folks Moving from Bangor Homeless Shelter 

It’s easy to take basic necessities for granted.But for folks transitioning from the Bangor Homeless Shelter into their own homes, it can be an expensive purchase.Local organization, Welcome to Housing is trying to relieve some of the burden.They set up shop outside Marden’s in Brewer, asking shoppers if they would mind picking up some basic items.” A lot of times when people are moving out of the shelter they have nothing in the place they’re going to and we’re basically starting them out, taking away a little bit of financial burden off, in other words we’re getting things they would normally have to go out and purchase themselves,” said Welcome to Housing Volunteer, Chris Olsen.They will make care packages out of the items collected Saturday.
