Employees of Columbian Financial Group have collected over $6,500.00 at their Binghamton office which will be donated to CHOW®, the Community Hunger Outreach Warehouse.
CHOW® is a food banking operation that partners with over 100 emergency food programs throughout Broome County. Thanks in part to new distributors and agency partners CHOW® is able to turn just $1.00 donated into 5 meals. With this donation, that means that CHOW® will be able to provide over 32,000 meals to our community!
Every year since 2010, employees of Columbian have participated in a friendly, month-long competition to raise money and collect non-perishable food donations for CHOW®. With 95% of their employees working from home since mid-March, the way of gathering donations may have changed but the employees of Columbian have recognized the need in the community is greater than ever and were able to continue this proud tradition.
Due to the negative impact this pandemic is having on our community members, CHOW® now has a group of volunteers assembling meal boxes daily for those in need. If you or anyone you know could benefit from CHOW®, please contact CHOW® at 607-724-9130 for more information.
CHOW® depends on the generosity of the people of Broome County to help those who struggle with food insecurity. To make a donation, large or small, please contact CHOW® at 607-724-9130. Donations can also be made online by visiting https://broomecouncil.net/donate-now/
