Help those in need by visiting Shaw's Supermarket this Saturday

BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - You can help provide paper products for neighbors in need this Saturday just by visiting Shaw's Supermarket in Bangor.

Students from UMaine will be passing out a list of items needed for the Winter White-Out Paper Drive.

Items collected will go to the Welcome to Housing Home Goods Bank which provides household goods to people in need for free.

You can bring items or buy them at Shaw's from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. Saturday.

Welcome to Housing founder Christopher Olsen says this event's been successful year after year.

He says, "There's a lot of people starting out that are struggling and it's a way to really make a difference and make things a little bit simpler. When we can provide free furniture and free household goods and in this case free toilet tissue and things like that, they have money, they have more money for food, more money for housing and so forth."
