So he's giving back in a really nice way.
Times are tough all over, but in Maine, not having a steady income can mean not having enough money to buy heating oil. As we're heading into the winter months, that's really something that the residents in the area really can't afford to do without, so horror author Stephen King is stepping up to help some struggling folks.
He announced this week that his foundation will work with the three Bangor area radio stations he owns to raise $140,000 to buy heating oil for low-income residents. His hope is that his listeners will raise $70K for people, which he will than double with his own funds.
It might seem like a lot, but it means more than you can even imagine. The area can get all the help that they can get, so if you can do something for these people, you should. And Bravo to Stephen for putting such a wonderful event together to raise money for the cause.
