(WBNG Binghamton) A popular car club is taking action to help the Community Hunger Outreach Warehouse or as it’s know: CHOW. The sale of miles railroad track earlier this year derailed the annual stop for the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train. CHOW was set to take a big hit in donations the holiday train had collected.
With so much uncertainty about whether the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train will ever get back on track–the Twin Tier Mustang Club got its wheels turning to fill the void of food and monetary donations for CHOW.
“After the Veterans Day Parade—which starts at 2 p.m. on Wednesday– we are going to be meeting at the Floyd L. Maines Arena and anyone who wants to get a closer look at the bus or the Mustangs are more than welcome to come there and bring donations there if they prefer, “said Bob Seidel, president of the Twin Tier Mustang Club.
Seidel personally went to CHOW to see if they could set something up.
“I thought that was a great idea and so we are going to be partnering with them,” said Jack Semen of the Broome County Council of Churches.
Last year when the train visited, CHOW gathered more than 2 thousand pounds of food and raised hundreds of dollars in cash donations from people.
So far this is the only major event CHOW has added for the holidays– so it is encouraging others to get involved.
“Anyone can have a food drive. It is as easy as calling our offices or dropping food off at our warehouse to help fill that gap.”
