Day One is in the books, and if my memory is still intact, I believe this the the best Monday we've had in the 23 years of the Food-A-Bago food drive for Broome County CHOW.

And that's on a day that we were hit with constant rain! Normally, Monday is a slow day since it's just the beginning of our annual food drive, but if this is any indication, our community is going to really help out families in need ion our area this year.

The number of individuals and families who stopped by our Food-A-Bago location in the Weis parking lot at 1290 Upper Front Street was amazing, with all ranges of food and cash donations.

To name just a few who donated - Scott, Dylan, Pat, Gary, Cindy, Margo, Ann, Jan, Terry, Joe, Phyliss, Darren, Tim and several who wished to remain anonymous.

And also a big thanks to those businesses who stopped by with grocery cart challenges by filling at least one or two carts of food, including GHS and the Old Union Hotel.

To give the food drive a big kick start, our friends at the Gault Auto group stopped by, and together we went shopping, filling up several carts overflowing with food for Broome County CHOW, plus a $2500 donation from Gault as well.
