Bangor Savings Bank to collect Coats for Kids in December

BANGOR, Maine — All Bangor Savings Bank locations in Maine will be drop-off spots for the 37th annual Coats and Toys for Kids campaign during the month of December.

Bank locations are collecting new and gently-used coats during normal operating hours. The campaign is coordinated by the Salvation Army and News Center Maine, and has provided more than 800,000 coats to Maine children over the years. 

All donated coats are cleaned and stored by Pratt-Abbott Cleaners. Coats will be collected at bank locations through Dec. 31.

“We’re proud to play a role in helping provide warm coats to Maine children and families in need,” said Bangor Savings Bank President and CEO Bob Montgomery-Rice.

Hannaford, Shaw’s, and Pratt-Abbott locations also serve as Coats and Toys for Kids drop-off spots. The 2018 campaign collected 17,200 coats and 6,710 toys.
