Sponsor a child

There are 300 children left to sponsor as part of the Penquis Christmas is for Kids program

BANGOR, Maine (WABI) – Penquis is close to reaching its goal for the Christmas is for Kids program, but they need a little help getting there.

For the past 40 years, the program has helped provide Christmas gifts to children who might not otherwise have them.

They only have 300 children left waiting for a sponsor.

A few weeks ago, that number was 1,200.

You can go online and select the child you want to sponsor this Christmas.

You can either do the shopping yourself or donate some money and have the people at Penquis do it for you.

“I think it gives people a lot of joy to give back. We’re going through a tough time right now, and people are looking to make a difference. Giving this time during the holiday season is a way for people to really make a difference, and I see a lot of joy when people come and drop off their gift. It helps them feel like they’ve done something and made a difference in people’s lives,” said Renae Muscatell, community relations manager at Penquis.

It’s the last weekend to shop before the deposit deadline.

The Gun Runners Motorcycle Club will hold a toy drive for the program tomorrow in Dover-Foxcroft and Bangor.
