BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - Bangor City Councilors accepted a big donation.

An anonymous donor gave the city more than $4,000.

It will go to the city’s Pay It Forward Fund.

The fund was started more than five years ago as a way to give back.

Rindy Fogler, Community Services Program Manager, said, ”If it’s a problem that’s going to perpetuate that’s not what Pay It Forward is about. It’s really about helping someone in the moment who has a problem in front of them. If they could just a get a little help, they could get over the hurdle and sort of get back on their feet again and maybe be in a better position to help someone else.”

City officials say the person who started the fund also wants to remain unnamed.
