UMaine Business Students Lend Skills to Boost Nonprofit

Members of the University of Maine MBS (Maine Business School) Corps were interviewed for a Channel 2 (WLBZ) news report on volunteer assistance the group provided Aunt Nellie’s Attic, a thrift store in Holden that benefits the Hammond Street Senior Center in Bangor. Students shared knowledge about marketing, product placement, customer relations and other aspects of running a business as a way to help local communities and also apply lessons from the classroom to the real world. Channel 7 (WVII) also carried a story on the project on its Jan. 27 evening newscast.
