Hands of Hope Helps Children in Need

Hands of Hope is providing community members the opportunity to be a holiday angel to a child in need.
With the return of the Wish Tree program this year, the charity noticed children are asking for needs instead of wants, with bedding sets, clothing, boots and coats being popular choices.

Donors can pick an angel tag from trees located at local businesses and purchase the gift requested.
Hands of Hope is also in desperate need of used coats at their Bangor Thrift Store, located in the K-Mart building. they provide many people with warm winter clothing and donations are getting low this time of year.
