As you know, the Federal Government shutdown is taking it's toll on many families here in Maine, and the folks at Bangor's Chick-fil-A are holding a big event today to help out!

Today, January 24th, until 9 tonight, it's Federal Government Civilian Employee Appreciation Day at Chick-fil-A, off Stillwater Avenue, right by the entrance to Bangor Mall.

Just show your Federal Government ID, and receive a free meal!  Watch Todd Shultz, the manager of our local Chick-fil-A below for all the details.  Here's a few more details from the Chick-fil-A Facebook page: This promotion is valid only at Chick-fil-A Bangor. Free meal is valid for regular sized meals or an entree salad and medium beverage (Dessert beverages excluded).

Thanks to Todd and the crew for helping out local families in their time of need!
