Day 2 Update – Whale Food-A-Bago Food Drive
Two days are in the books. Thanks to all who have stopped by our Hillcrest RV camper in the parking lot of the Weis Food Market on Upper Front Street Binghamton to say Hi and drop off non-perishable food, sponsored by Fidelis Care.
If you haven't had a chance yet to stop over, there's still time. We will continue to collect food for Broome County CHOW and families in the county up to 10am Monday November 7th.
For those in a rush or maybe shy to meet a radio personality (we aren't that scary), there are CHOW barrels set up in front of the camper for you to quickly drop off your food donation.
Tuesday was a better day for donations! The beginning of our annual food drive usually starts slow, and gets busier as the week goes on, along with usually busy weekends when most people have time to stop by. If that works for you, that's great. Helping families in Broome County gives you such a great feeling!
Every $1 donated to CHOW translates to FOUR complete meals. Jason from Sherburne donated $10 and that means CHOW will be able to give FORTY meals to neighbors in need.
Here's a couple highlights from Tuesday:
Ray is a veteran who knows what it's like to fall on hard times. He drove all the way from Smithville Flats to make a donation.
Not only did Eva who works at JCPenney, donate a bunch of non-perishable food items, but she also donated four big boxes of candy so kids receiving food from CHOW can enjoy a sweet treat. Eva is encouraging all of her co-workers at JCPenney to also donate.
Take a look at the pictures above for the progress our listeners have made, and we hope to see you this week or weekend at The Whale's Food-A-Bago!
