Bangor firefighters spent the Tuesday night buying Toys for Tots
Thanks to donations from companies like L.E. Myers Electric in Palmyra and Nickerson O’Day construction in Bangor, they were able to buy about $5,000 worth of toys.
As part of their annual shopping trip they visited the Briar Patch bookstore downtown, and then headed over to Wal-Mart.
Firefighters say part of the reason why they’re inspired to help is because they see the economic hardship many families are enduring every day.
