Fill-A-Bus school supply event Featured

Written by

BANGOR - The United Way of Eastern Maine collected school supplies Saturday outside of the Bangor Walmart that will go to Penquis' We Got Your Back Program.

Last year organizers said they served around 1,500 children and are hoping to exceed that number this year.

 

They are accepting a list of items, but one thing that is needed the most are backpacks.

 

Community Initiatives manager Meredith Alexander said, "All of the materials are gonna go directly to Penquis so they're the ones that are doing the sorting and creating the different backpacks and distributing all of them."
