Bangor Salvation Army Low on Donations
It’s the time where many of us are doing some spring cleaning and when you might be thinking of getting rid of things you don’t use anymore.The Salvation Army is hoping you’ll donate those things instead of throwing them away.The Family Store on Broadway in Bangor is low on donations right now.While they’re always looking for clothing donations, they want to make sure you know they accept all sorts of items from electronics to furniture to toys.”Usually the spring is a bit slow, but we have had far fewer donations then we usually do, so that’s really having an impact on what we have in our store to help raise money for our social services that we do in the community,” said Captain Tim Clark, the core officer for the Bangor Salvation Army. The money raised from sales in the store helps fund programs like the Salvation Army’s soup kitchens and other social work.The store accepts donations seven days a week. On Monday through Saturday there’s someone there to take your donations from 7:00 AM to 6:00 PM. On Sunday, the store isn’t open, but you can drop off items from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
