Aunt Nellie’s Attic to get a facelift

BANGOR, Maine — With help from University of Maine’s Maine Business School students, Aunt Nellie’s Attic will be reorganized from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 27. The Maine Business School Corps is doing this in hopes it will boost sales during Aunt Nellie’s last year in Holden.

All proceeds from Aunt Nellie’s go to the Hammond Street Senior Center.

The mission of the MBS Corps is to be the outreach organization of the Maine Business School with a focus on primarily helping smaller Maine-based non-profit organizations where it can have a greater impact. The group also says it seeks to help business students develop their leadership, organizational, management, marketing and other business skills while developing friendships and networks in a fun, supportive environment.

The students in the MBS Corps are future business leaders who believe in corporate and social responsibility and are working to make a difference in their communities, according to the group.

“We are so thrilled the Maine Business School students picked Aunt Nellie’s as their project,” said Kathy Bernier, executive director of HSSC. “Fresh minds and an enthusiastic attitude can help all involved.”
