BANGOR – An organization that provides temporary housing for those undergoing cancer treatments got some extra help with its mission earlier this week.
Located in Holden, Sarah’s House opened a little over five years ago. Its mission is to provide support for people undergoing cancer treatment needing to travel 30 miles or more for their care.
On Tuesday, a van provided by Darling’s Auto Group was signed over to Sarah’s House.
“A lot of folks come to us that don’t have a vehicle of their own so they get dropped off at Sarah’s House and we are able to get them back and forth to their treatments, to tests, even to the grocery store. So we are able to get them where they need to go to make their stay more comfortable,” said Sarah’s House Executive Director Delores Landry.
Landry said that since it opened, Sarah’s House has been able to save its guests more than 800,000 miles in travel and related expenses.
She said this would not be possible without community partners.
