Dressbarn in Bangor to hold Toys for Tots donation drive

BANGOR – In an effort to bring holiday magic to disadvantaged children this year, Dressbarn will hold its first Toys for Tots drive Monday through Friday, Dec. 8-12, at the store at the Bangor Parkade on Stillwater Avenue.

Shoppers may donate new, unwrapped toys for the cause. To show their thanks, Dressbarn stores will give donors a 15 percent coupon off a regularly priced item, said Lori Sue Gravel, district sales manager.

“We want to spread that holiday cheer to those who are in need, and this initiative really helps us to do that,” Gravel said. “For several years, the Toys for Tots program has delivered a message of hope to needy youngsters that motivates them to grow into responsible, productive, patriotic citizens and community leaders. We at the Bangor Dressbarn location are proud that the company has decided to take part in this effort and are so happy to be a part of this great mission this year.”

According to the organization’s Web site, the objectives of the Toys for Tots program are to help disadvantaged children in the United States experience the joy of Christmas, play an active role in the development of children, unite members of the local communities in a common cause during the annual toy collection and distribution campaign, and contribute to better communities overall in the future.
