If you’re like me, you tend to sort things out and take them out periodically before the holidays, to make room for some of the new items that gift-giving season has to offer. One of the things I always find myself in is old bedding. Kids update their beds every couple of years as they grow out of patterns or sizes, and I’m left with linen closets bursting at the seams and tubs of old sheet and pillow sets.
Fortunately, there is a place nearby that can make good use of such items. The Bangor Humane Society already launched a call for blankets, sheets and towels last weekend.
“The shelter is warm, but the floors are still cement and our animals should be comfortable this time of year! We have plenty of pillowcases, but our large dogs need comfy quilts and blankets. Feel free to leave your donation on our covered porch at 693 Mt. Hope Ave. And we’ll Bring things as much as possible!”
Imagine how awesome it would feel to know how amazing these animals are by donating the things that you accumulate and are of no use anyway! What a great opportunity to open up some space and help animals in need this holiday season.
I was told they also run out of canned cat food. If you feel like Secret Santa for a pet or two, the Bangor Humane Society also has an Amazon wish list. You can click here to see what’s on that list and help.
