A Special giveaway had veterans lined up in front of a Howland business today for "Vacs for Vets." 

More than a dozen people made their way to Sprague's Vacuums on East Market Street before the business was even open on Friday. 

The business purchased more than a dozen vacuums for the giveaway, and when word got out, the response becomes so overwhelming that Stephen Sprague ordered more. 

He said it felt good to give back to the community that supports him. 

"If your doing business in the community and the community is supporting you, I've raised three kids in this area, and the local schools and the local people come in here I want to give back to them I think I owe them at least this much," Sprague said. 

Since the giveaway was announced on Facebook, it was shared more than 250 times and viewed by more than 20,000 people.
