Nickerson & O'Day teams up with the brave men and women of Bangor Fire Department
December 15th: Each year, Nickerson & O'Day teams up with the brave men and women of Bangor Fire Department to raise money and then go on a massive shopping spree for the Toys for Tots program.
This year, we were able to raise about $3,000 and Tuesday night, we visited Bangor stores and "filled the firetruck" to the roof with presents! We then delivered the load to the Bangor region Toys for Tots warehouse for distribution to needy families.
In doing this, we ensure that dozens of children across Maine who otherwise would have nothing under their tree Christmas morning, can see that Santa did not forget them this year!
Many thanks to Bangor Fire Department Chief Thomas Higgins, and firefighters Andy Willigar, Jared Bowden, and John York and many others and their families for allowing us to be part of this great tradition! Merry Christmas to everyone!
