# Mainers helping mainers
Volunteer and Donation Requests Available in Maine
The Bangor Humane Society is asking for some help from Mainers to keep the dogs in their kennels comfortable. They are asking for donations of blankets to use on the cold kennel floors to keep the dogs comfortable and warm. Donations of clean, new, or used blankets, comforters, or throws can be dropped off at the Bangor Humane Society from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday. If you have donations but can't make it during those hours, you can stop by and leave items on their covered porch. The Bangor Humane Society is located at 693 Mount Hope Avenue.
The Christmas Spirit In Maine
Mainers are known for helping out our neighbors, and there are so many that help others without any expectations of recognition. I did want to take the time to recognize one Maine business that really has made it feel like Christmas for those who might otherwise not have had a tree if it were not for the generosity of this business.
