Welcome to Housing Drive for Housewares 

Welcome To Housing  is holding its second annual drive to help fill the homes of people just coming out of shelters. The drive will be the next two weekend in Brewer and Bangor (for details see link below).

Last year the group helped provide more than $40,000 worth of housewares to the community.

“Think of when you had your own apartment, your first place, some of the basics anything for kitchen, bed and bath gently used is fine. We’re going to be handing out little shopping lists when people go into the stores where we’re holding these events that give them an idea of some of the things we’re looking for,” said Christopher Olsen, Welcome to Housing Head Volunteer.
