The WLBZ 2 Back 2 School Supply Drive is back! | Community Spirit
Bangor, Maine (NEWS CENTER)-- The WLBZ 2 Back 2 School Supply Drive makes a return on Thursday, August 30 from 4:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. outside the Target store in Bangor. We'll have live updates throughout the day.
According to a survey conducted for the National Retail Foundation, the average person with children in grades K-12 will spend $688.62 on their children to go back-to-school-- up from $603.63 last year.
Help us help others by donating school supplies like backpacks, pencils, pens, markers, notebooks, folders, calculators, rulers and more. All of the donations will be given to the Salvation Army who will distribute them to families in need.
If your family or a family you know could use a hand with school supplies, contact the Salvation Army in Bangor at 941-2990.
