There’s something you can do this summer to help families struggling to make ends meet. An event called “Scare Away Hunger” is coming to the Southern Tier.
The Binghamton Mets, the Community Hunger Outreach Warehouse (CHOW) and the United Way of Broome County are joining forces to combat the local hunger epidemic.
People are asked to bring non-perishable food items to donate at the Binghamton Mets game on July 31st at 1 p.m.
Those canned goods will go to families in need throughout the community.
“Anytime the people can enjoy themselves while helping it’s a win-win for everybody,” Binghamton Mets General Manager Jim Weed said.
The “Scare Away Hunger” initiative will take place as part of the B-Mets “Halloween in July” event.
Tickets to the game cost six dollars. Proceeds from those sales will also benefit CHOW.
