I was honored to celebrate the opening of the brand-new store in Bangor, Maine by presenting two Random Acts of Kindness checks!
The first check for $2,500 was presented to Chris Olsen, the founder of Welcome to Housing Home Goods Bank in Bangor. The goal of the organization is to help individuals, including veterans and families succeed as they transition from area shelters to permanent housing by providing basic household items donated through the local community. They also help people experiencing other life disruptions.Led by Olsen, Welcome to Housing assists clients of more than 60 agencies and organizations.
Bangor High School
The second check for $2,500 was presented to Paul Butler, the principal of Bangor High School. Located just a quick drive from my new Bangor store, BHS is one of the largest high schools in Maine and serves over 1,100 students.
