Winter White Out event to help people settle into their new homes

BANGOR - A home goods bank called "Welcome to Housing" brought their "Winter White Out" event to Shaw's in Bangor Saturday morning.

The organization collects toilet paper and other paper products and gives them away to people in need.

 

They help people who are getting a new start, whether it's from a shelter, the corrections system, people who've escaped domestic violence, or even victims of house fires.

 

Volunteer Chris Olsen said "It's been wonderfully successful the nice thing about it to is not only are we collecting up items, we're also sharing our little leaflets, and we get calls from months afterwards with people that want to donate things whether it's furniture or other home goods."
