Three days in and we have been so excited to meet with people from our community who have stopped by to donate non-perishable food items or monetary donations for this year's Food-A-Bago Food Drive for Broome County CHOW.

We are off to a great start, but that large Broome County CHOW truck has a lot of room to fill with food to assist families in our community. I can't stress enough that the amount donated doesn't matter. If it's just one item of food or one dollar, you make a difference.

What Is A Food-A-Bago Grocery Cart Challenge?

There have been some grocery cart challenges so far as well. A grocery cart challenge is when you fill up a grocery cart full of non-perishable food to donate to Broome County CHOW and challenge someone, a business, a relative, a co-worker, etc. It's all in fun, but the result is a win for families in Broome County in need of assistance.

Are Cash/Check Donations to CHOW Tax Deductible?

For every $1.00 you donate, CHOW is able to work with partnering agencies to turn that into five complete meals, so a dollar definitely stretches. Cash donations are accepted at the Food-a-Bago food drive but checks are as well and if you plan to write a check, we ask you to make it payable to Music For The Mission, our partnering non-profit. 100 percent of donations will be given to CHOW. All donations are also tax-deductible, so if you would like a receipt, please let us know.

Can I Make An Online Donation?

Absolutely! You can make an online donation through this secure PayPal link.

Where is the Food-a-Bago Food Drive?

Townsquare Media radio stations (98.1 The Hawk, Kiss 104.1, 99.1 The Whale, 1290 WNBF, and CBS Sports Radio 1360) are stationed inside an RV in the parking lot of Weis Markets, 1290 Upper Front Street in Binghamton from October 31 until the early morning hours of Monday, November 7 to collect your non-perishable food donations as well as cash or check donations.
