Concert parking 'Fire Forward' fundraiser Friday in Bangor

Written by

BANGOR - People heading to Friday night's waterfront concert can help fire victims recover at the same time.

The folks from Bouchard Cleaning and Restoration will be parking cars to raise money for the company's "Fire Forward Program."

Lara Clark says she came up with the idea a few years ago after seeing so many fire victims lose everything they own.

“I felt there has to be a way to help give back to these families, so we started collecting gently used clothing, toys, toiletry items – things like that,” Clark said.

They also hold fundraisers to help those families begin their journey down the road to recovery.

Concertgoers can help too by parking their vehicles in the Infinity Federal Credit Union on Broad Street.

A $20 donation will get you a parking spot close to the concert venue and will also help local fire victims.

Those who want more information can contact Clark at [email protected] or by calling 947-4454.
